Fallon On Myners

Michael Fallon, Conservative MP for Sevenoaks, has suggested that Myners should 'step down' as, in Fallon's view, he has misled Parliament and misled the public.

Admirable suggestion Mr. Fallon, but unfortunately if this suggestion was made mandatory it would result in most of the MPs being required to resign for either of his two reasons - which may well be a good idea in that a great number of them appear totally unsuited to the position they occupy.

The point about a number being unsuited to the position they occupy is simply the fault resulting from the introduction of 'A' Lists and the 'need' to demonstrate diversity and equality in the candidate selection processes of all parties.
