The loss of Mark Harper as a minister is a great shame

I don’t condone the set of circumstances which led to his resignation today, but the loss of Mark Harper is a great shame. He is one of the better Tory ministers. He worked as Nick Clegg’s deputy in the Cabinet Office and did a very good job. It was great to see his defences of reforms at the dispatch box. Of course, I exclude his launching of the “Go home” campaign from my admiration. In fact I think that was a vile campaign.
