Peters stands down

At last. Peters has faced up to the reality of the situation and stood down.

He may not be guilty of any of the charges made against him — as the Director of the SFO emphasised yesterday — but it is simply untenable to have a Minister of the Crown carrying out his ministerial duties whilst under investion by the SFO.

I hope that Peters does have the evidence he promises, as otherwise we won’t get to the bottom of this before the election. But I’m not holding my breath.
