Why Laws Must GO NOW!!!

We are not going to pass comment on David Laws sexuality.

We are not even going to pass comment as to whether we think that David Laws has cost the taxpayer more or less money by claiming for his accomodation, the way that he has.

We are not even going to pass comment on the Liberal Democrats Election Campaign against the Parliamentary expenses scandal.

What we will pass comment on however, is the way in which Laws is wriggling to attempt to save his political skin.

'But the rules remain unambiguous: MPs are forbidden from "leasing accommodation from a partner". Laws's defence currently relies on a highly technical definition of partner that may not satisfy either parliament or the media.

In his statement last night he said: "Although we were living together we did not treat each other as spouses. For example we do not share bank accounts and indeed have separate social lives." '
(New Statesman 29th May 2010)

Sorry David, your story seems too far fetched. Some of us lived with our spouses and also did not share bank accounts and generally had separate social lives, especially when working in the media or politics.

You should do the honourable thing and say, you made a mistake and for the sake of your Party and the Coalition you resign immediately.

When will the day come when politicians will start thinking about others instead of themselves?
