(satire – I think)
The Culture Secretary Maria Miller was preparing for life outside politics after the Prime Minister David Cameron refused to withhold his full confidence in her – effectively ending her political career.
A spokesperson for the Culture Secretary said:
My understanding is that Ms Miller was expecting to survive the scandal over her expenses claims but now the prime minister has turned on her by pledging his full support she realises her political career is all but over.
It wouldn’t have been so bad if he’d been a bit half-hearted about it but a full pledge of confidence from the prime minister is obviously the kiss of death.
Ms Miller’s pending resignation follows other political careers brutally cut short by full pledges of support from the Prime Minister such as his former treasurer Peter Cruddas, his former director of communications Andy Coulson and his former chief whip Andrew Mitchell.
