How often do we hear of a government minister doing something so wrong that they have to resign from their post, only to find that what they have done is not so bad because they can keep their job as an MP at a basic salary of £66,396?
What he has done is either so bad that he shouldn't be an MP or not so bad in which case he shouldn't resign as a minister.
Change the world
P.S. It is now the 30th March and here is another resignation.
