Enough is enough. Whether it's Owen Paterson or Boris Johnson, Westminster is rife with accusations of sleaze.

We need an independent inquiry into the impact of MPs having second jobs and the effect that has on our democracy.

No one should be able to pay for influence in the Houses of Parliament. That’s why we think we need clear and unambiguous guidelines more rigorous checks and tougher penalties for MPs who break the rules.
