Sez all ya need t’know!

Nick Robinson (some time President of the Oxford University Conservative Association) on the BBC website:

I have spoken to a wealthy backer of Liam Fox who says he and half a dozen others raised funds to pay for Adam Werritty to act as the Defence Secretary’s unofficial adviser — someone who, unlike civil servants, could be relied on to champion support for Eurosceptic, pro-American and pro-Israeli policies.

Compare and contrast (as they say on exam papers):

One of those donors was Michael Hintze, the founder of the CQS hedge fund and one of Australia‘s richest men, who allowed Mr Werritty to use a desk at his London offices. The tycoon supplied a private jet for Dr Fox and Mr Werritty to fly home from the United States in May.
