David Laws resigns, Chris Huhne to replace him at Treasury
David Laws, chief secretary to the Treasury, has resigned.
This was over paying his partner over room rental.
A bit sad, as a gay man he wanted to be private, which is fair enough.
However inappropriate expenses is particularly inappropriate for a government axe man.
I suspect he will be replaced by another (neo) liberal, keen to cut the public sector and feed all which is market based and corporate.
I think we are in for a good five years of a government that while appearing a little to the centre will move the UK in an even more capital friendly direction, shrinking the public sector, crushing trade unions and opposing things like open source/free software.
The weak will suffer, the rich will gain....although the Capital Gains Tax reform does appear to be a socialist exception from a government of the right.
Chris Huhne will take up David Laws post, apparently.
