Gotta laugh at Cameron falling into his own "lobbying will be the next big scandal" pit - and through sheer greed, too. The arrogance and entitlement-assumptions of Blair and Cameron know few boundaries.
To me, there's a question as yet unvoiced, which might usefully occupy the enquiry:
- Cameron did not expect to lose the 2016 Referendum, nor the 2015 GE, and thus to be in the wilderness looking for wonga as early as turned out to be the case. So: why was he bending over backwards for Greensill way back (2011-2012) in his first administration? Very long-term planning on his part? or Someone Else in that government spotting the main chance for themselves?
Mercifully, Britain is not corrupt au fond: Rafael Behr correctly assesses matters here. (I've worked in Russia ...) But it's a slipperly slope.
