Sorry just for the uninitiated and in a nut shell, what is the controversy about? That an MP directly and personally profits from its decisions and opinions?
Some people might be bothered by that, and I think the initial calls of hypocrisy were because he is very pro-brexit and the benefits it brings to business, whilst simultaneously trying to divest as much of his business offshore (including to the EU in Dublin!) as possible.
