As Nike would never say: just don’t do it, warns Whitehouse

Speaking today on news that Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, stands accused of cronyism, lobbying veteran Chris Whitehouse, Chair of the Whitehouse Consultancy says:

“With the rising tide of sleaze accusations lapping now at the Health Secretary’s heels, the word should go out across government, loud and clear: if you wouldn’t want it splashed across the press, just don’t do it, as Nike wouldn’t say! It’s a much more effective and simpler rule than all the others in the book put together.”
