"Cash for questions: new row over Scottish lord’s £30k deal"
"The Sunday Herald has established that around half the parliamentary questions tabled by Lord Moonie, a close friend of prime minister Gordon Brown, relate to areas of commercial interest to US-based Northrop Grumman Corporation."
"Moonie is employed by Americium Developments (Edinburgh) Ltd, which Henderson runs with Glenrothes businessman Richard Nawrot. The company, which is overdue filing its accounts at Companies House, had only £1371 in the bank in January 2007. It claimed assets of £2,123,409, of which £2.1m was attributed to a "holistic concept for the delivery of complex public and private facilities", priced by the directors."
"The Sunday Herald can also reveal the closeness of Moonie's links to Gordon Brown and Chancellor Alistair Darling. The peer, who entered the Lords after making way for Brown to be the Labour candidate in Kirkcaldy during boundary changes, bought Brown's flat in Kennington, south London. He allowed Darling to move into the property as his co-tenant between 2003 and 2006, according to the electoral roll."
Hmmm...This story could get BIG...VERY BIG.
