However, CF is forced, grudgingly, to admit that Campbell's take on G-g-g-gaygate is not totally, utterly wrong:
".. I feel some personal sympathy for Laws .. but none for David Cameron and Nick Clegg, who both milked the expenses scandal for all it was worth .. If there is one good thing to come out of this, it might make them feel less prone to mount a high horse whenever a bandwagon is passing."
So as they now try to turn this from a story of expenses to a story of a human tragedy - which it is - do not forget it is also a story about leadership. If Laws, in Cameron and Clegg's eyes, did nothing wrong - and their statements would suggest that is their basic take - and if he is so brilliant, then they might have put up more of a fight to keep him"
The detestable git is not wrong, is he? Bad Al also has some words of wisdom for Cleggy:
"Clegg should use this to take stock. He came third in the election. He did not do as well as he or anyone else expected him to. Yet he is now deputy PM. That is beginning to rankle with a few people, and requires him to strike a slightly different tone.
"So calm down a bit, Nick. Underclaim and over deliver. When you go around saying a ragbag of constitutional proposals .. represents the biggest change since the Great Reform Act .. people start to wonder whether you are not inhaling your own propaganda too much."
