MP's and big businessmen

Why do multibillionaire big businessmen invite MP's and influential people in public office to free holidays in their villas or luxury yachts ?

Because Mp's are such great party guests who are so witty and charismatic that they make any shindig a night to rememeber? Hmmmmmmm then again its probably just so they can give them the huge back hand in person rather than trust a few million quid in the Royal Mail :).

Honey, perhaps?

That would not be the same one who used her influence to get her son some business by any chance

" of honour."
Margaret Thatcher - exactly!! She would be pleased.

She had more about her than most male MP's

MP,s should not have business interests while a serving MP. As it may lead to conflicts or allegations, they could always stand down if they do not like it.

Let's be a little realistic.If they didn't have business or other interests, they wouldn't survive on their wages and perks of office.

And why fly economy class, when you know the boss of the airline, or similar!.
