If the allegations are true I’m utterly appalled that a Liberal Democrat should let the side down in such a way. Apparently he claimed a holiday home in Eastbourne was his `main residence` while he really lived in Vauxhall, was a member of the Residents association there and had parties there.
I’ve always thought it was time for Chris to take a backseat. His literature has become tired with the same old same old formula of post offices, `time for a change` and women’s magazines.
It’s time a polite word was said `Chris we thank you for the work you’ve done and please hand in your notice to the Lords authorities`. The damage has been done as there’ll always now be a Tory/Lab response which will now have to be done at a constituency level. If the electorate hate one thing more than MPs with their snouts in the trough it’s a Lord doing the same.
