(not satire – it’s the Lib Dems!)

Let’s not forget how Liberal Democrat MP Chris Huhne – who has decided to resign today – told his wife of 26 years that their marriage was over.

Huhne casually informed her during the half-time interval of a televised World Cup football match he was watching that the press had discovered he was having an affair.

According to his ex-wife, the conversation lasted just a few minutes. He then apparently went to his study to write a press release about it before going to the gym.

I’m well aware a lot of people might think such personal revelations have no bearing on the ability of someone to carry out their duties as an elected representative.

I don’t agree.

Personally, I can’t see how someone who so casually and cold-heartedly treated someone who was supposed to be close to him could possibly care about the interests of the constituents he’s supposed to represent.

Can you?
