I can’t help thinking that the Daily Telegraph is now playing a dangerous right wing political game. I guess that they have known about David Laws ever since the original revelations about MPs’ expenses but kept it back for a more opportune moment which has now arrived.
It appears that they are now part of a right wing campaign to destabilise the coalition. This is extremely dangerous. If the coalition falls apart the stock markets will have their revenge and we may well suffer as Greece is now suffering. There is also no guarantee that an early election brought on by the collapse of the coalition and of our economic recovery will return a Conservative government. It is quite apparent from the recent election that in spite of media vilification of Gordon Brown the electorate is by no means convinced that David Cameron is a big enough politician to rescue this country from the economic mess we are now in.
This country is in a very desperate economic and social crisis. Now is not the time to rock the boat. Factional interests on the right and the left would best serve their causes by keeping quiet and supporting the elected government. Digging dirt is not the way out of a hole but will only leave us deeper in the sh*t.
