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.

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