Andrew Mitchell is The Guardian’s new helper
Andrew Mitchell, the former Chief Whip and International Development Secretary, has found a new outlet for his talents after losing his job over a difference of opinion with a Downing Street police officer. In the updated Register of MPs’ Interests he declares that he has taken on as a director of The Foundation, a London management consultancy, who are paying him £3,000 a day to work six days a year, with £10,000 up front.
Prominent among The Foundation’s clients is The Guardian newspaper, who will now be able to draw on the expertise of a politician whom a Guardian editorial last September accused of having “ineptly…damaged himself, his party and his government.”
