Edward Lister Tory Advisor accused of foul Play
Edward Julian Udny-Lister is another Tory Palpatine that is spending your money or increasing our national debt! When will the poorest in society stop voting for these swamp creatures?
Our Sith Lord Bojo’s top aide ‘Palpatine’ AKA ’Eddie’ has shares in a firm that was handed £1m in ‘The Ex Empire’ government contracts.
The CON servatives scourge
Eddie Lister has more than £50,000 worth of shares in a company awarded six public contracts since he joined No. 10.
Without strong watchdog institutions, impunity becomes the very foundation upon which systems of corruption are built. And if impunity is not demolished, all efforts to bring an end to corruption are in vain.
Tory peer Eddie Listers crony has shares in Johnson Controls, a US-based engineering firm; its UK arm has secured six public contracts since Lister joined Downing Street as the prime minister’s Chief Strategic Advisor.
I smell a RAT
Johnson Controls merged with Tyco, where Lister had worked for more than a decade as ‘director of government relations’ – before Johnson brought him to City Hall as mayor, and then to Downing Street.
I Know a GUY?
A total of £998,000 worth of contracts have gone to the company since Lister became the prime minister’s adviser, The biggest contract was £521,000 for fire alarm systems, handed to Johnson Controls in January 2020 through an arrangement with the Cabinet Office.
Karma is Just!
Meanwhile, the prime minister has been warned that he risks losing his election gains against Labour if he does not clean up the “shameful” Westminster lobbying controversy, a Tory grandee has warned.
Sir Bernard Jenkin, chair of the Commons Liaison Committee – made up of senior MPs, has urged the Johnson to get a grip on the lobbying system following a series of revelations in the wake of Greensill Capital’s collapse into administration.
People’s indifference is the best breeding ground for corruption to grow
A failure to be “more transparent” than previous administrations could risk the so-called “red wall” seats on which Johnson built his 2019 majority, Sir Bernard suggested.
Sir Bernard said the “lines between public service and private gain” had become “blurred”.
The senior Tory described the current situation as “shameful” and “utterly corrosive of public trust in government”.
A series of probes have been commissioned, including by Downing Street, as Westminster looks to understand the role former prime minister David Cameron played in securing Whitehall access for Greensill, which was selected to delve out government coronavirus support loans at the start of the pandemic and whose collapse now risks thousands of jobs, particularly for Liberty steel.
The saga deepened last week after it emerged the former head of government procurement, Bill Crothers, took a part-time position with the failed firm while in his Whitehall post.

The pope is right to but we must not forget that for decades ahead the economic responsibility will be placed on the shoulders of our children. They will be the ones who will have to correct the mistakes of our GREEDY establishment.
