McGrail Inquiry features in corruption episode of The Rest is Politics podcast

Published by GBC News

The McGrail Inquiry has featured in "The Rest is Politics" podcast, which regularly ranks among the UK’s best politics podcasts.

The hour-long episode called “From peerages to Putin: the fight against corruption in politics” covers so-called corruption stories from across the world, including Britain, the USA and - for a few minutes - Gibraltar.

It features former cabinet minister, Rory Stewart, and former Downing Street Director of Communications and Strategy, Alastair Campbell, who talked about the controversial introduction of inquiries legislation on the Rock.

After giving some background on the inquiry into the events that led to the early retirement of the police commissioner, Mr Stewart said “it’s difficult in a small place”, where everyone knows each other.

He said Gibraltar is “tiny beyond imaginable”.
