The Resignation of David Laws From the British Government

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury  has resigned. Why? He bent the expenses rules by claiming rent for a room in his partners house. He did this to conceal the fact that he is gay and he was living with his partner. He has apologized and is paying back the 40,000 pounds he received over the years.

To have even hinted that he would be able to keep his job was simply foolish. The fact that he has resigned so promptly is a good thing. There was no option. A Coalition Government, trying to establish themselves as a viable government to be trusted could under no circumstances have David Laws as a minister.
