A British MP on Tuesday was isolated for working in a Caribbean tax haven with his term in office, amid allegations that his Conservative party is already embroiled in unsupported corruption scandals. According to the Daily Mail tabloid, lawyer and MP Jeffrey Cox, who advised the government of the British Virgin Islands and earned up to 900 900,000 (0 1.05 million), worked over 6,000 kilometers in his constituency and voted remotely in parliament.
This revelation is the worst in the midst of a storm for the Conservative government: it is a Tory MP. It angered the opposition and part of its majority for wanting to change parliamentary rules to avoid sanctions for its campaign activities. Following the scandal, Prime Minister Boris Johnson was criticized for not participating in an emergency debate in parliament on Monday on the rules of conduct for members of parliament. Jeffrey Cox did not comment on the Daily Mail revelations.
Justice Minister Dominic Rob assured the Times Radio that the rules governing the second job for delegates were strict and that it was a second job.Proper“As long as Mr. Cox is there”He correctly concluded the declaration of his interests. ⁇What is important is that transparency surrounding any external interest is, ultimately, decided by the voters at the polls.“Whether they renew their confidence in Mr Cox or not, he told the BBC.
