More Laws

Lembit Opik, former Liberal Democrat MP, is reported to have told BBC News that there is no question of David Laws resigning over the question of the latter's questionable second home claims.

Lembit Opik states that ".....He's a millionaire as he is, he doesn't need the money.....". Lembit dear chap, forgive me for being cheeky - a trait with which you have past 'form' - but that begs the question if Laws did not need the money, why did he claim it? Laws reportedly did not claim for his constituency home so why claim for a 'London' home? MPs either exhibit probity, or they don't - and if the latter then he/she has no right to hold public office.


Afterthought: Do remember that NickNick reminded the nation, during the Leaders Debates, that his party were 'whiter than white' - or was that 'yellower than yellow'?

I guess Opik is trying to use Laws as a vehicle for his own possible exoneration. There's no question that Laws is guilty. But then most of them are.

Why did he not clear this up earlier?

Constantly Furious makes a valid point about his "privacy" argument.

Have read CF's post GV and totally agree. One thing I will admire about Laws is that he has had the 'courage' to behave like a gentleman! If only others would take their cue from him.
