Theresa May’s chief of staff is being dismissed over a payment to former MP Chris Bryant for a TV debate
Former leader Tony Blair has resigned as a director of private equity firm Carlyle – six months after former prime minister David Cameron chose him to be shadow chancellor.
Lord Ouseley, a former Labour business minister who was appointed to the Cabinet by the late Tony Blair, is said to have agreed an undisclosed pay-off to Bryant’s company, Carlyle Investment, in return for him to attend an event at Blair’s former Oxford home.
In a letter, Blair said: “I know I have 모나코 카지노done nothing wrong and I accept that Carlyle have acted reasonably in the manner indicated in the invitation. I accept their decision to make the payment to the director of Carlyle and we will do what we can to help avoid such cases occurring in the future.
“I would also like to thank my wife Jane for supporting me throughout the past three and a half years of campaigning and I would also like to thank the vast majority of people from whom I have paid my respects.”
At the time of Lord Ouseley’s resignation, Bryant said: “His decision to appear on my doorstep is very serious, particularly at such a critical time for our country. I did nothing wrong at all with respect to the invitation of my friend Lord Ouseley for us to be featured on Jeremy’s BBC1 programme.
“It was in no way unfair or unethical. I am looking forward to an independent inquiry into thes타이 마사지e matters and I will, of course, make no further comment at this time.”
He has also agreed to donate £10,000 to the Open Britain committee to aid its work to investigate the 2010 Panama Papers.
Tory MEP Roger Helmer, who was not elected to a seat in Parliament, said: “If David Cameron had wanted to continue to be leader of the Conservative Party he would have resigned. It’s time for this sacking엠카지노.
“His conduct suggests the kind of party we’re now known for being in, or which has been so badly damaged by its leader.”
Meanwhile, Theresa May’s chief of staff, Nick Timothy, has resigned amid controversy over a payment to former Labour MP Chris Bryant.
