A Downing Street spokesman insists that any suggestion of a cover-up is “categorically untrue”.

If the case that there was no cover up then surely they have to admit that Cameron and Osborne lobbied for Uber because the evidence from Boris Johnson and TFL clearly confirms that , which breaches Public Law.

If it’s true that there was a cover up that still means they have acted improperly by covering it up and not being honest with the FOI which is a breach of Public Law AND they have lobbied for Uber which is a breach of Public Law.

They have either committed one offence of unlawfully lobbying for Uber or two offences of failing to comply with the FOI and unlawfully lobbying for Uber.

The Daily Mail’s front page carries allegations of a “cover-up” involving David Cameron’s advisors and the Uber online taxi firm.
The paper says the former prime minister and George Osborne allegedly told aides to lobby the then mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to oppose proposed curbs on Uber.
The Mail further claims that Downing Street did not hand over details of the alleged lobbying operation when asked to do so, under a freedom of information request – although they later emerged from Transport for London.
