Laws

by

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.

    Blimey! His sexuality I couldn’t care less about, to be honest, and as long as he hasn’t voted against equal rights it’s fair enough.

    But this looks really bad for the Lib Dems. Could the hardline Tories exploit it to get their way on CGT and other things?

    I am so glad Labour didn’t enter into coalition with the Yellows now. Bunch of liabilities.

    Oh, and you have a dangling bold tag somewhere…

    You also shouldn’t forget the sort of things he said (and proposed) when he was the LibDem’s Work&Pensions spokesman.

    Oh dear. Laws’ replacement Danny Alexander almost immediately gets into similar problems with Second Home Allowance – the old flipping to avoid CGT trick.

    New Politics sure looks just like the old politics

    Agreed.

    Agreed.

    I’m in total agreement with you comrades.

    Twas my first blog post written on a mobile phone! Fairly successful, apart from the boldness, I’d say.
