As promised, here's a short thread on some interesting (read: dodgy/shady) information on donations accepted by our dear MP Guy Opperman.

Pour yourself a drink and dive in ...
The #WestminsterAccounts from Sky News make for interesting and sometimes disturbing reading and I recommend you taking a look.
But here lets take a quick dive into the info for Guy…
You can see that Guy has declared £24,500 in payments and gifts, which is well above the average for all MPs.

But it's some of the detail that is most interesting.
The first, and biggest, 'gift' of £7,500 comes from Gary Lydiate.
Mr Lydiate is a CEO of a de-icing product manufacturer who was a strong supporter of a no-deal Brexit (so clearly a man of exceptional foresight based on how that's going!)…
Mr Lydiate's 'gifts' have gained him access to high-level Tories (including PMs) in the past where he can attempt to influence policy
See here:…
And his cash probably influenced outcomes of elections.
See here:…
So Gary Lydiate is clearly expecting some sort of return on his 'gift' to Guy Opperman. I won't speculate what that might be here however!
Second, is £5,000 from the secretive 'London and Northern Dining Club'.
Guy was (is?) under investigation for this, but as far as I can tell there has been no outcome on this, despite the referral being over a year ago now…
Who did Guy present to? What did he speak about? I suspect we may never know
We then see approx. £10,000 from the former CEO of Greggs, Fergusons transport and Fiona and John Raglan. Again, what these gifts were for or what was expected in return is unclear...
But it's the gift of £2,000 from Prudhoe based Essity that made me chuckle...
This is the Essity that Guy enjoys so many Photo Oppermantunities outside. Which answers a question some of asked only last week about why he likes to visit there so much!
Leave your thoughts below. Is it time to boot #OppyOut?
