As if we the people did not have enough laws constricting our freedom the political elite are softening us up to accept the return of another - David Laws. This is the man who, it will be recalled, deliberately used the art of deceit to hide his sexuality from the public domain even though it is said that fact was well known among the remainder of his fellow politicians and also to the press.
So, once again, we have the situation where a politician who has admitted behaviour that is not accepted in the public domain - and I am not talking about his sexuality - is to be re-appointed to a position in which he will be able to decide matters which will affect us all - and how we may be permitted to act and behave.
In instances where anyone elected has committed a crime, it should not be left to his colleagues to decide whether he may be given a second chance, it should be the decision of the people, the electorate, to decide - and not just those of the constituency of the politician concerned.
This matter brings to mind the phrase "Thick as thieves"...........
