Just curious how anyone here might view the political demise of David Laws. The situation seems to be that he claimed expenses for rent paid to his 'partner' for accomodation without mentioning that the person the rent was paid to was indeed his partner. Payments to partners are not allowed. However, had he declared that the person was indeed his partner and he was living with him, then he would have been able to claim rather more money for their home. Basically, he claimed less than he could so as to hide the fact they were, er, partners. He has now resigned. What do people think?
