Cameron said lobbying was an issue that "has tainted our politics for too long".
He went on: "We all know how it works. The lunches, the hospitality, the quiet word in your ear, the ex-ministers and ex-advisers for hire, helping big business find the right way to get its way. In this party, we believe in competition, not cronyism.
"So we must be the party that sorts all this out. Today it is a £2bn industry that has a huge presence in parliament. The Hansard Society has estimated that some MPs are approached over 100 times a week by lobbyists.

He is just saying that so that he can garner a following.. Like Bono.. There are all out for public image of themselves only. Some good might come of it, but in the end they do it for personal gain, Pure and simple.

Makes me think "why oh why did I not become a politian?"
Might have something to do with having morals, I am sure there are a couple of good politians out there but they are certainly not the majority of them.
I can't see Cameron fighting this how many of these corperate types do you think he went to school with hell most of the top part of our politians went to the same schools.
Cameron has no clue how poor or even middle class live and he never will. He will not be getting my vote even if it would get rid of Labour as I fail to see a difference between the 2 parties
