Parliament Ltd: a journey to the dark heart of British politics

Williams, Martin, author

If you want to understand why politics isn't working, the first place to look is in the bank accounts of our politicians. From secret second jobs to suspicious tax avoidance schemes, British politicians continue to rake in money and consistently mislead Parliament with conflicts of interests. And years after the expenses scandal, politicians are now claiming more expenses than ever before. In Parliament Ltd, investigative journalist Martin Williams reveals for the first time the true extent of greed and corruption in Westminster. Containing explosive new revelations about the activities of those at the top - this is a shocking, untold tale that goes to the rotten heart of British politics
