Laws again

Your comments on the Laws post are mostly right and I was being remiss. Either you have a zero tolerance of corruption amongst Parliamentarians or you don't. Laws is as guilty as the others, and I don't think the sentencing magistrate would give that much weight to either his sexuality or his abilities as Chief Secretary.

However, I believe rehabilitation is possible. How many decent soldiers, upright citizens and honest burghers were shocked into future rectitude by one early brush with the law?

One obviously doesn't know what pressure was applied behind the scenes, but it is noticeable that he appears to be the first government minister to resign of his own accord for a long, long while. We at least should give him full marks for that!
