Bureau Recommends: Investigations into Fox ‘shadow’ adviser continue

October 18th, 2011 | by The Bureau

The British press continues to investigate the relationship between former Defence Secretary Liam Fox and his close friend and unofficial advisor Adam Werritty.

Today we are recommending a series of articles from across the British press, which continues to unearth new details about the manner in which Mr Werritty benefited from his relationship with a Cabinet minister, why he attended top-level government meetings and how his lavish lifestyle of first-class flights was funded.

Liam Fox has gone: now hunt all the Tories: here.

As Scandal Engulfs American Legislative Exchange Council‘s UK Affiliate, a Closer Look at Its US Operation. Lee Fang and Scott Keyes, ThinkProgress: “The Atlantic Bridge, the British affiliate organization to the American Legislative Exchange Council, is quickly erupting into a scandal that may force the public to scrutinize the practices of both right-wing groups. Earlier this month, the U.K.’s Charity Commission shut down Atlantic Bridge after an investigation revealed that the nonprofit has operated as little more than a front for various corporate lobbying and Tory party interests. The scandal has already forced the resignation of David Cameron’s Defense Secretary Liam Fox after the revelation that the Atlantic Bridge’s London-based director, Adam Werritty, had improperly acted as a high level advisor to Fox while employed by a number of military industry and lobbying clients”: here.
