The UK is pretty much in a big pile of dung right now and what annoys me more than anything is the political crooks we let govern the country in anyway they choose. Today’s David Laws looking to be pulled back into a job with “the boys” is pretty sickening while the average British household struggles to pay bills or keep a job these cronies and crooks of a network who are pretty much all political parties in bed together. People complain about third world politics but one thing that does happen in the third world is every now and again someone fills these crooks full of lead and at least a little justice is done. Freedom is something we have lost in the UK and I am glad I live thousands of miles away its about time people made the changes themselves and got rid of all of these “career” politicians as they have only one interest personal gain.
Colleagues hinted David Laws could make a speedy return to government
Senior Tories and Liberal Democrats raised the prospect of a speedy return to Government for David Laws in the wake of his resignation over expenses abuses.
The Treasury Chief Secretary became the coalition’s first casualty after it emerged he had channelled tens of thousands of pounds of public money in rent to his secret boyfriend.
Conservative Cabinet colleagues including Iain Duncan Smith and Ken Clarke praised Mr Laws for making the "right" and "honourable" decision to quit.
But they also indicated his absence could be short lived. "I am deeply sorry that he has had to go," Mr Duncan Smith told the BBC’s Andrew Marr programme. "I have no questions at all that he has the talent to be back."
According to Justice Secretary Mr Clarke, the Yeovil MP "may well" be able to satisfy the parliamentary standards commissioner that his expenses arrangements were excused by his desire not to reveal his sexuality.
The sentiments echoed the reactions of David Cameron and his Lib Dem deputy Nick Clegg after the resignation was announced on Sunday night.
The Prime Minister described millionaire Mr Laws as a "good and honourable man", suggesting he could return to government "in time". And Mr Clegg added: "When these questions have been addressed, I very much hope that there will be an opportunity for him to rejoin the Government."
Chancellor George Osborne went further, insisting Mr Laws’ performance during his 17-day stint in office showed he had been "put on earth" to do the job of Chief Secretary and bring down the deficit.
Even Mr Laws’ Labour shadow, Liam Byrne, struck a conciliatory tone, telling the BBC Politics Show: "He is a hugely talented man and I think he does now deserve the space to gather himself together."
A Treasury spokesman confirmed that Mr Laws would not be taking the severance pay-off normally given to departing ministers. The MP was also facing questions over whether he should have declared an interest when hosting an event in the Palace of Westminster for the lobbying firm that employed Mr Lundie.
