Is there one lobbying rule for Cameron and another for the rest of us?

Speaking today on news that the Government is to commission an inquiry into David Cameron’s recent lobbying activity, veteran lobbyist Chris Whitehouse, Chair of The Whitehouse Consultancy says:

“The government is right to investigate these reports. It’s simply not good enough for David Cameron to seek to feather his own nest by hiding behind and exploiting the rules of the legislation that he himself introduced, and there is also a real question about what is right, proper and seemly behaviour by the former holder of the highest political office in the land. Is there one rule for Cameron and another for the rest of us when it comes to probity in public life?”
