Advisor who got Tories to buy useless PPE loses his unpaid position. Is that really enough?

Liz Truss: she slipped her buddy Andrew Mills £150 million for useless PPE, launching a huge corruption scandal in the process. Now the Tories have quietly dropped him from his position as an unpaid advisor to the Board of Trade.

Some might say it’s poetic justice that Andrew Mills, the man who advised Liz Truss to buy unusable face masks for the NHS, has lost his position as an advisor to the Board of Trade.

But what’s happened to all the money that she paid the firm he also (as it happens) advises, Ayanda Capital?

Was that repaid?

If not, then it seems the loss of his unpaid position – as part of a wider reshuffle and not even connected to the PPE scandal – is no punishment at all.

    Just another example of the mucky millions being passed around amongst the Tories and their mates, scratching each others backs and lining their pockets whilst the rest of us are vilified for living on £74 per week JSA. But look the other way, some foreigners in a dinghy!

    I read the £100 Company with no assets was paid £40 Million upfront before there was even paper work in place (ie an actual written contract). It is utterly unbelievable that this bunch of criminals, laughingly called our PM and ministers, simply hand over those sums of money to their mates. For nothing. And now they are “negotiating” Brexit and trade deals? It beggars belief that we are going to be bankrupted by these looters and their pals.

    Fascist tories continue to think they can fool us peasants and sadly far too many ‘peasants’ are believing these fascist tory criminals!

    So sacking an unpaid fascist tory adviser is the only response to the scandal of fascist tories giving billions of our money to their cronies!!! Not buying it lardy fascist dictator boris – you and your criminal bros are responsible for bankrupting our country and reducing it to ‘little england – a fascist operated dictatorship!’
