David Laws

David Laws seemed like a switched on dude and it's a pity that he's resigned. It's also a pity that we still live in a society where some people still feel that they can't be open about their sexuality. Already tonight Nick Clegg got on the 'did it to keep his life private' bandwagon. What this boils down to, though, is "I screwed the taxpayer out of forty thousand quid because I didn't want people to know I was gay."

Doesn't cut it. Nobody held a gun to his head and told him to run for parliament. No matter how good a Treasury Secretary he was shaping up to be, he stole money from taxpayers. End of story.

Update: a real pity.
