Cameron shows no moral fibre with sacking

He sacks an aide, no great loss to him, but the MP the aide is married to is untouched, so his power base in the Commons is undiminished and the MP appears to be clean.

There you go, Cameron has just shown himself to be just as immoral and unmoved by all this as any of the other troughers.

Vote Tory and nothing will change.

Update: My mistake, obviously MacKay is an MP, but the point is still that surely both of them should go.

Update 2: Post in haste, repent at leisure! Right, what is happening is that MacKay is resigning as Cameron's aide, not as an MP. In other words, all he is doing is getting the idea in front of the public that someone from the Tories has been sacked or made to resign. MacKay is not doing anything here but allowing Cameron to look like he's doing something when he's really doing fuck all.

Looks like Cam's cleaner was better than Gordon's (shared) cleaner.

It's a promising start!

It's nothing, curly15. It's not even window-dressing.

That's all that matters these days, though - that you appear to be doing something.

And people wonder why the public is cynical about politicians...

It's all the fault of "nihilist, corrosive, right-wing bloggers", don't you know?

I think the only peopl who can sack an MP are voters at an election?

Anon, if he had the balls Cameron could suspend McKay from the party or kick him out altogether. Gordon has already trumped him by suspending Elliot Morley and Cameron has threatened Norman Tebbit with expulsion. So why isn't Cameron doing something with a bit more teeth than accepting McKay's resignation as tea-boy, the softcock. The only thing postive to say about Cameron's handling of the Tory expenses is that till now he's looked better than Brown. That's a relative term though.

This has happened in readiness for tomorrow's revelations on Ball's - then Brown will be under pressure to say adios - it's all planned very carefully.
