Politics Home reports that the News of the World has won a hearing in front of a High Court Judge to publish a further article about Nigel Griffiths.
This MP has betrayed the 'honourable' trust that his electorate placed in him and, more importantly, has betrayed the trust his wife had in him. On the latter his 'judgement' is a matter for his wife, but on the former it is a matter for his electorate, which on the findings of the latest opinion poll for ICM would result in his receiving a P45.
How John Lyon, Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards can reject the complaint against Griffiths is beyond me and, perhaps, he too should be seeking alternative employment.
