David Laws: Knocked For Six

Looks like it could be game over for David Laws.
Last year he resigned as Chief Secretary to the Treasury after just 17 days when it emerged he'd claimed £40,000 to pay rent to his boyfriend - the first big fuck-up of the Coalition government.
Apart from the Coalition itself.
Laws had claimed this was because he was trying to hide he was gay - which is sad, but perhaps understandable.
But BBC News reports; "The standards and privileges committee is understood to have decided Mr Laws broke 'around six' expenses rules."
More on this story later...

  1. Bloody right too. Unbelievable that Cameron & Clegg think this creep has any chance of coming back. He didn't need the money - but he stole it anyway, and then tried to use being a closet case as an excuse!
