Conservatives suspend Sir Malcolm Rifkind after 'sting' BBC News 23 Feb 2015

Sir Malcolm Rifkind has been suspended from the Conservative Party in Parliament after being secretly filmed apparently offering his services to a private company for cash.

Sir Malcolm and another former foreign secretary, Jack Straw, who was also filmed, say they have broken no rules.

Reporters for the Daily Telegraph and Channel 4's Dispatches posed as staff of a fake Chinese firm.

Gotta love the "broke no rules" defence - a.k.a. "everybody is doing it... we just got caught"
