Conflict of interests
In 2004 Tory Iain Duncan Smith launched the Centre
for Social Justice (CSJ) - a right-wing lobby group.
Flash forward eight years and Duncan Smith is now
minister for work and pensions - a department
regularly lobbied by the CSJ. Don't worry though, he
cut 'active ties' with the group in 2010.
Unless you count his policy special advisor working for
it, that is. Philippa Stroud, who used to be the
executive director of the CSJ, is now its co-chair of
board of advisors and is paid a wage by the group,
while also paid to advise Duncan Smith.
