The news of the Conservative's new European party group, the election of a new Speaker of the House of Commons and the opening day of Wimbledon have overshadowed the resignation of Ian Clement.
I've been at youth oriented engagements all day so I'm not fully up to speed with the details but it looks like Ian has been stupid and greedy at best. I'm angry and disappointed.
I won't pretend that this won't add to the local anger caused by Derek Conway's behaviour but both these issues are personal failings of individuals both of which were dealt with decisively by the party.
