Laws – Hit for six – Apology and suspension!

Chagrin - perhaps?

David Laws was required to apologise to the House of Commons for his behaviour, which he duly did today.

He still explains himself by claiming he was solely motivated by his desire to keep his sexuality private!

Is this man for real? He follows in a long tradition of prominent Liberals to have entered Parliament believing that they could deceive the public by keeping important matters such as their sexual orientation private. Jeremy Thorpe Ex Leader, or the current Deputy Leader of the Liberals, Simon Hughes would serve as typical of this tendency within the Liberal Party.

No early return to front line politics it would seem after this, for quite a while at least.
