Someone in the Labour Party with honour and integrity, never thought those words would appear in the same sentence.
In a letter to the Prime Minister, Wirral West MP Stephen Hesford said: “My decision comes about because as an aide to the Law Officers, whilst I have great personal regard for the Attorney General, I cannot support the decision which allows her to remain in office.” reports Sky News
Mr Hesford’s resignation letter reads:
‘Whilst I have great personal regard for the Attorney General, I cannot support the decision which allows her to remain in office.
In my view the facts of the case do not matter. It is the principle which counts, particularly at a time when the publics’ trust of Whitehall is uncertain to say the least.’
It seems the first the Prime Mentalist heard of the resignation was live on Radio 5, nothing like keeping your boss in the loop.
