Govnet Communications (2)

Following on from my original post it would appear that GovNet Communications is a trading name for the Partnership Media Group Ltd., whose accounts I have seen and which, on the face of it, are 'above board'. As a point of interest I did receive a reply from Hilary Armstrong, although Eleanor Laing has decided not to so do (to date).

In conclusion therefore, it is worth pointing out that these two Members of Parliament, who have no background in publishing, (see Wiki here and here) are accepting payment from a company that specialises in publishing government information - something that either should be free for everyone - or, possibly, something which is subject to the Official Secrets Act which, in turn, would mean that both MPs are accepting payment to 'sort out' 'inside information'.

Either way, these two MPs are receiving a salary to which they are not really 'entitled'!

Well investigated WfW. I should think this is the tip of the iceberg though.

As Sub says, good stuff, but this is the tip of a sadly-not-melting iceberg.

See if you can do the same for every MP. It might take you months, but you never know what juicy stuff you'll find!
