Well, well, well, three weeks in and we have our first casualty of the Coalition....David Laws, the Chief Secretary of the Treasury, has had to resign because he had submitted bills for over £40,000 for his second home even though the address which he gave was the same as his lover's. This has been outlawed since 2006.
You have to ask, notwithstanding his abject apologies, how he thought it was legal in the first place. Imagine any MP (man or woman) living with their respective other halves (woman/man) claiming the second home allowance.......
Now, we have three men under 45, in charge of our nation - Cameron, Osborne and Alexander. Call me "ageist" but we need some wisdom in that threesome sooner rather than later.
Today, is a bank holiday; tomorrow the money markets may just sell the £ short.
