Michelle Mone admits involvement with ‘VIP lane’ PPE company

The Tories are absolutely brazen in their corruption. Instead of going to jail for theft of tens of millions of pounds, Mone was elevated to the House of Lords:

The admissions raise questions about years of denials from the couple. Until now, Mone and Barrowman have consistently and emphatically denied to the Guardian, via lawyers, that they were involved in the company.

In November 2020, Mone’s lawyer asserted that “Baroness Mone is not connected in any way with PPE Medpro”. Barrowman’s lawyers repeatedly denied that he was an investor in the company or a consortium supporting it, and said he “never had any role or function in PPE Medpro”.

In December 2020, a lawyer instructed by Mone and Barrowman said “any suggestion of an association” between the Tory peer

Taxpayers are paying about £3.2 million a year to cover the cost of storing millions of “sterile gowns” which were bought by the Government during the Covid crisis from a firm which allegedly has links to Baroness Mone.

Lawyers representing Victoria Atkins, the Health and Social Care Secretary, indicated on Thursday, at a High Court hearing in London, that the total storage bill had topped £10 million.

They told Mr Justice Bright the total spent on storage by the end of 2022 was about £6.9 million.

Mr Justice Bright was given figures while overseeing a pre-trial hearing in a £130 million damages dispute centred on the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) during the pandemic.

In response to questions from the Guardian, three separate firms of lawyers emphatically denied from late 2020 that the couple were involved, variously saying that she “was not connected to PPE Medpro in any capacity”, had no “association” with PPE Medpro, and “never had any role or function in PPE Medpro, nor in the process by which contracts were awarded” to the company.

Mone told Kuenssberg that she had lied to the media because she wanted to protect her family from press attention, not as a “smokescreen” to hide her involvement.

“I did make an error in saying to the press that I wasn’t involved,” she said. “Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I wasn’t trying to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes, and I regret and I’m sorry for not saying straight out, yes, I am involved.”

She is an outright barefaced liar that admits lying but then says it was not an attempt to lie but yes, it was a lie. 

She can never be trusted with anything she has ever said and done in her life or in her future. Should be forced to pay all the profit as a fine at the very least.

Shrewd? 'Thieving' would be a more accurate description. And a stupid one, given the idiocy of her attempt to get the sympathy of the taxpayers she stole from.
