Blair and Brown dithered. Cameron acted.


Full marks to David Cameron for removing the Whip from David Conway, the now disgraced MP for Bexley and Old Sidcup. Conway was caught red-handed. He then tried to gain sympathy by apologising to his family. He then apologised to his constituents, Parliament and to the Conservative Party. The normally-sane Roger Gale, MP, was on the Today programme trying to do the impossible: defend Conway's behaviour. Roger Gale said that Conway is "innocent until proven guilty". Well, Roger, Conway has already admitted to the main charge and has apologised - would he have done that if he had been innocent? No, of course not. Ironically, Conway was a leading player in the downfall of IDS - accusing Betsy Duncan-Smith of claiming cash from the public purse for working for her husband on constituency matters, when she infact did not (this later turned out to be a totally false allegation). Hunter not only views Conway as a thief but a hypocrite, too.

It's just a shame that Blair and Brown dithered on taking firm action against those Labour MPs and ministers in the wrong.

I hadn't realised that he was one of the prime movers against IDS's wife _ you're right. He is a hypocrite. No doubt there are plenty of A-listers salivating over the prospect of stepping into his shoes......
