Panorama on lobbying

I watched Panorama last night with interest. Indeed, I am afraid to say that I hugely enjoyed it. Is that wrong?

We must say that Patrick Mercer vehemently denies any wrong-doing.

What was remarkable is that Patrick Mercer went on about the rules so much but then appeared, allegedly, to bend them.

And it is quite extraordinary that a “fellow MP” apparently warned Mercer about the “lobbying firm”. Mercer even said:

Who are you?

-to the undercover journalist, saying that there was no trace of him on the internet.

But still he apparently and allegedly went on with the relationship.

And this man has a researcher…

It took me 30 seconds to find out that there is no “Alistair Andrews Communications” on the Australian Business Register.
