David Laws is, quite rightly, going to take a lot of stick for his dodgy expenses claims.
Who knows – perhaps Cameron will have to lay down the Laws (boomboom) and start looking for a new Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
He’d have a hard time finding a ‘talented’ Lib Dem to replace Laws. It would be a real headache for the coalition.
Laws’ expenses will be great ammo for Government critics to fire at the coalition. How is he now going to sound authoritative when demanding massive public spending cuts?
Some will also wonder why he was so keen to keep his sexuality secret. None of our business, perhaps, but in this day and age it’s a crying shame when a politician can’t be open about being gay. Bizarrely the Liberals seem to find this particularly problematic.
But I was already disgusted with Laws even before this news broke. How could someone campaign on a platform arguing that cuts this year would damage the economy and then, upon being offered a plum job by Big Dave, become a sudden enthusiast for immediate austerity measures?
Previously sanctimonious but now scandal-tainted Laws is the pin-up boy for Lib Dem hypocrisy and for a Coalition Government made up of rich, greedy politicians who plan to decimate our public services.
