With the chaos and churn of Tory Ministers coming and going, Labour have this week proposed closing loopholes to stop short-stay Ministers walking off with totally unjustifiable severance payments, as well as banning them for any minister found guilty of gross misconduct or breaches of the ministerial code.

Shockingly, the Tories voted to block Labour’s reforms, showing they are more interested in lining their pockets than in finding savings for the taxpayer.
