The Priti Patel Situation

So Priti Patel met with lobbyist and government ministers whilst on holiday in Israel and didn't tell anyone then lobbied the government here to send extra aid to Israel. She then allegedly lied about who she had told about the meetings and was forced to disclose this all, now it turns out that Theresa May might have known all along and number 10 might be complicit in breaches of the ministerial code and subsequently lied about said breaches to cover themselves.

Couldn't happen to a nicer politician. Horrible piece of overconfident shit that overstepped her pay grade. Brilliant.

A government minister voluntarily does something which puts them in the position where at a later point could make them vulnerable to blackmail by a foreign state. I really just don't get the logic. She must have thought it would win her support for her leadership ambitions at a later point.

No, she is actually as thick as she is over-confident.
But yes, you're right. Very, very stupid.
Do the diplomatic corp at the Foreign Office actually give elected officials any sort of training?

an odious politician even by Tory standards- As uncaring for the hardships of fellow humans as it is possible to be, yet in charge of international development where she resents the amount of foreign aid budget that is seen as the norm in other developed countries

Theresa May urged to make statement clarifying exactly what she knew and when about Patel's Israel meetings To view the link you have to Register or Login

With Number 10 and the Jewish Chronicle at loggerheads over various questions of the classic “who know what, when?” variety (see 12.33am and 1.23pm), opposition parties are saying Theresa May now needs to make a full statement to clear everything up.

Ian Blackford, the SNP leader at Westminster, said in a statement:

If [the Jewish Chronicle allegations] are correct this goes straight to the prime minister’s door and calls into question the integrity of the prime minister herself, who must now make clear what she knew, what Downing Street knew and when, and she must do so today.

This is a humiliating set of circumstances - not just for Priti Patel but Theresa May and her entire government.

And Jonathan Bartley, the co leader of the Green party, said:

If true, today’s revelations show that the lies in government go right to the top. The prime minister should make a public statement detailing exactly what was known and when. And if Number 10 knew about Priti Patel’s additional meetings in Israel and lied about it, the prime minister should clearly consider her position.

Nasty piece of work, she wrote part of the book 'Britannia Unchained' and thinks that UK workers have too much time off and favours a more American style of working (10 days annual leave, not having the Monday off if Xmas falls on a weekend, etc).

According to the Times today:-

Nearly all the money given by the Department for International Development to providers in developing nations went to a single business, the Ethiopian branch of the American management consultant McKinsey & Company.

If McKinsey is excluded, only 0.4 per cent of the 1.4 billion spent on aid contracts went to schemes whose prime contractors were in poor countries.

What is most depressing is that even though she is clearly unfit to manage the international aid (or possibly any) portfolio, if she hadn't been grotesquely stupid as to embroil herself in the current scandal, she'd be happily sitting on the front bench waiting for her chance to climb further up the greasy pole. What is so flawed in our system that power, almost without exception, falls to place-seekers and corrupt mediocrities with no integrity or ideals?

Nasty piece of work.

I remember her being very pro death penalty on question time, even when pressed about miscarriages of justice.

I hope she gets what's coming to her.

I think Rory Stewart would be good at DFiD. Patel has been a terrible Minister who only got promoted to reward the Brexit wing of the party. Patel, Leadsom, Fox, Johnson all well out of their depth.

Davis has done OK. Would be far better at FCO than Johnson. Gove has been far better at Defra than Leadsom. Is there any talented pro Brexit junior ministers to maintain balance? Raab seems like an idiot to me but is meant to be a depper thinker than most.
