banana republic klaxon:

Boris Johnson’s government has awarded £100,000 of taxpayers’ money to a company that donated £25,000 to his leadership campaign

fair to say that @alexwickham is on fire at the moment

now going to point out that £10m went to 16 ports, so Bristol's £100,000 is way under the average....but this is an obvious conflict of interest, weird they didn't spot it

and the potential conflict of interest was obvious in July as wrote back then
