What does this Egyptian billionaire want from Sunak’s Tories in return for £5 million bung?

Quiet money: it’s not really a backhander, but we certainly have good reason to ask what Egyptian billionaire Mahmood Mansour hopes to buy with his £5 million payment to the Conservative Party.

Almost as soon as I published my story about Boris Johnson being investigated by the police, someone responded by asking what major story that ‘dead cat’ had been slung on the table to cover up.

Normally, one can just ignore those remarks because they’re made by Tory supporters trying to divert attention from their government’s latest atrocity.

But this time I thought I’d cast around – and here’s a story that seems to have been buried: of an Egyptian billionaire who has donated £5 million to the Conservatives – the biggest bung to a UK political party in 22 years.

Now, why would anybody do that?

The Conservatives have received the largest political gift in 22 years from Egypt-born businessman Mohamed Mansour.

Praising the “capable” Rishi Sunal, the party’s treasurer rejuvenated the Tory coffers ahead of the next general election to the tune of £5 million.

Writing in The Telegraph he said: “I look at what he has achieved in his first months in office and think what he could do in five years.”

Some, commenting on this donation, have made the point that the Tories shouldn’t be able to criticise Labour for having “trade union paymasters” after taking this.

But if we’re to talk about the Tories having a “billionaire paymaster”, then we need to ask what Mr Mansour wants from them “in five years” in return for that still-huge amount of money – if anything.
