Nissan is to build a new car in Sunderland.

"Nissan's investment in the Sunderland plant comes with a £6.2m aid package from the UK Government."

What's the difference between the government giving a thriving private company a handout to secure investment, and a private company giving a government minister a handout to secure business?

Oh I see. It's jobs. Like BAe securing British jobs with its Saudi contracts?

"What's the difference between the government giving a thriving private company a handout to secure investment, and a private company giving a government minister a handout to secure business".

One difference is that the handout to Nissan is at least open and above board. While the money paid to a Saudi Prince or whoever it was, was very far from being open and above board.
