When we finally hear what the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner has to say on the David Laws’ case we’ll finally know the truth of the episode.
I feel intensely sorry for David Laws and his friend. It seems that a desire to keep their private life private may – may – have caused a misjudgment by Laws.
I suspect his resignation was inevitable in the end. I am sure Laws will bounce back.
What is a great shame is that David Laws was almost uniquely placed to pull the UK out of its financial deficit in a humane way.
