Default British Minister Resigns Over Undisclosed Meetings With Israeli Officials

She was the rising star of the conservative party and considered a prime candidate to eventually Theresa May as the face of the party.

During a supposed family holiday to Israel, she had secret meetings with Israeli PM Netanyahu and other political and business figures. After her trip the first thing she does is suggest that Britain sends more money to the Israeli army.

Shortly after her secret meetings in Israel were discovered, more undisclosed meetings came to light, among them a meeting with the Israeli Public Security minister in England and one with a foreign ministry official in New York. Adding to the bulk of the scandal she was forced to resign.
LONDON (Reuters) - British aid minister Priti Patel was forced from office on Wednesday over undisclosed meetings with Israeli officials after Prime Minister Theresa May sought to reassert her diminished authority as she negotiates Brexit.
It was not clear who would replace Patel, who held the meetings during a holiday in Israel earlier this year.

Under British protocol, a cabinet minister would normally organize meetings through the foreign office and be accompanied by officials, and visits with Israelis would typically be balanced with meetings with Palestinians.

Patelís meetings with Israeli officials, which Mayís office said they were not aware of, and a reported visit to an Israeli army field hospital in the Golan Heights, have increased the pressure on the prime minister, who depends on a Northern Irish party in parliament to pass legislation.
Sounds familiar?
