Liam Fox resigns!

Outfoxed by a global fox trotter's antics!
A BBC reporter said his position was looking precarious. Now Dr. Fox has done the decent thing and resigned. He's not a bad man by a long chalk. Just misguided, but we've all been there at one time or another. What I do not understand is why his political antennae got so muddled up. It's as if he never went digital. Did anyone pipe up and ask what his chum Adam Werritty was doing fox trotting all over the globe? It was all too dodgy for words.

Anyway, I sincerely hope he will be the last minister who does not readily grasp the ministerial code. Liam Fox needs to have his political DNA tested. He's not going to be much good if he appears blithely unaware of such controversial goings-on. He said he had "mistakenly allowed the distinction between my personal interest and my government activities to become blurred". Blurred for over a year! He needs a large pair of political specs, preferably not rose tinted.
