I think there are two sad things about the whole debacle wth David Laws.

The first is that he felt that he couldn’t be a gay man in politics and so felt that he had to hide it.OK, he was (probably) cheating on his expenses, but to be fair £40,000 over 4 years is quite a small amount, especially compared to what some of the others were claiming.

The second is that the media seem to be focusing on digging up dirt on the new cabinet and creating splits within the coalition. Why can’t they do something positive for a change and try and help it to enact change and electoral reform as they seem to be trying to do.
