I indirectly learnt a harsh lesson some months ago, not to automatically pass judgement on a politician just because a) I find he or she dislikeable and b) he or she is a Conservative or a Lib Dem. And yes, I did have that attitude, but I soon realised that if I were in the Party on the receiving end I would find such swift judgements nasty and unfair.
Now I don't like Derek Conway, mainly because from some of what I have heard about him he seems to be a nasty piece of work, and yet I can't gloat over this case.
I also don't think this is a witch-hunt, but I would say to Conservatives and Liberal Democrats when they gloat over Peter Hain and other unfortunate cases, not to throw stones in glass houses. These scandals affect us all and David Cameron should consider what he would demand Labour do if this happened to us and then have a good look in the mirror and ask if a) he would inflict the same punishment, and b) if not, then why not, and what that would say about his judgement!
