I'm sure this will be all over the BBC, eclipsing Diane Abbotts faux pas, lou_wink2 but I'll pop it here anyway:

Gideon bats for the bank

I wonder why?

I suspect nothing will happen. Nothing ever happens when things like this come to light...

 Interested to see which media outlets take up the story.

Don't think The Telegraph will be covering it:

I won't be banking on it being splashed all over the BBC.

Isn't this just the standard blatant corruption that we now regard as acceptable?

Former cabinet ministers getting huge salaries from companies they have awarded lucrative contracts to, MPs' companies being given government funding without proper tendering, and corporate 'friends' of government dodging uncomfortable questions about their business practice, and sometimes even dodging prosecution for sex offences.

Sadly the voters are more interested in Bake Off and Strictly than being educated about the morals of who they blindly choose to govern them.

In the last few decades the cabinet has on occasions been like a remand centre.

 This is the reality now, or it's become normal.  I would say the US are forging the way surprised
