It seems not a day goes by without the government being involved in some sort of sleaze, usually the “news” that they are being funded by vested interests.
So it is today. The Independent today has another example. Michael Gove has strong links with Edmund Lazarus, one of the founding partners of a City private equity company, Bregal Capital, which set up private schools company Cognita (itself currently embroiled in a pension fraud and commercial espionage scandal) in 2004. Several donations were made while Gove was Education Spokesman while the Tories were in opposition.
Gove returned the money Lazarus gave him, and there is no suggestion that either either of them have done anything illegal, but once again the government gives every appearance of acting on behalf of their chums.
Spare a few coppers guv?
