As the unnerving reality of the Donald’s Administration unfolds there’s some comfort to observe the shadier side of politics elsewhere, a convenient distraction, right? Well taking a look-see at a report today in the UK’s Times newspaper suggests that the flow of dirty cash from China’s regime does not stop at DC but extends into British political life also.
The Parliamentary office of MP Barry Gardiner, is reported as receiving nearly $250, 000 annual payments from a legal company with claimed links to the Chinese government. Including acting, according to another source, as legal advisor to the Chinese Embassy in London. The son of the company’s top executive, just happens to have a position at the office of the MP. Join the dots folks!
Of course it’s all legitimate according to the British Parliament, why? Well within that system as long as such ‘earnings’ are declared there’s no problem. Hmmm makes us wonder just what constitutes ‘dirty money’ over there in the UK? Would their politicians be so open about accepting funds from Iranian or Russian sources? Guess China’s financial ‘donations’ are deemed morally and politically acceptable!!!
