    When is Liam Fox coming out?

    Everything points to the fact that the bloke's a shirt lifter. In this day and age, I don't know why he doesn't admit it, instead of trying to lead the tabloids a merry chase when they obviously know everything and are circling like sharks.

    Liam Fox Hits Back At Claims He Misled Journalists Over Burglary

    Liam Fox has denied he had anything to hide amid claims journalists were misled about the circumstances of a burglary at his home.
    As allegations concerning his links to lobbyist Adam Werritty continued to swirl, the Defence Secretary confirmed reports that a friend had been staying at his London property when thieves broke in during the general election campaign.
    But he stressed it was not Mr Werritty - and said he was not sure why the media had been given the impression he was alone.
    "As I told the police at the time, a friend was staying in the guest room," Dr Fox said in a statement. "My wife was stranded in Hong Kong due to the ash cloud. For the sake of clarity, it wasn't Adam Werritty. I was a victim of a violent crime and I'm appalled at being portrayed as having something to hide. We're trying to establish why the media were given the impression I was alone."
    The development came with the storm engulfing Dr Fox showing little sign of abating. A series of new claims surfaced overnight, including The Sun revisiting the April 2010 theft at his home.
    Channel 4 News said Sri Lankan officials told them Mr Werritty offered to help them to buy arms during a trip with the Cabinet minister. And the Guardian reported that the 33-year-old described his position as "office of Dr Liam Fox" when he booked into a Dubai Hotel earlier this year.
    Meanwhile, the Daily Mail raised the issue of the Defence Secretary tagging short personal breaks where he was accompanied by Mr Werritty on to taxpayer-funded official visits.
    David Cameron is certain to be grilled about inconsistencies in the official version of links between the two men at Prime Minister's Questions in the Commons later.
    Dr Fox has apologised to Parliament for allowing lines between his personal and ministerial life to become "blurred". Mr Werritty was the best man at the MP's wedding, styled himself on business cards as an "adviser", and attended high-level meetings. However, Dr Fox has insisted there was no financial benefit from the relationship.
    The Defence Secretary has so far received strong support from colleagues, especially on the Tory right. However, senior backbencher Patrick Mercer, a former Army officer, warned that MoD staff needed to be able to get on with running campaigns in Afghanistan and Libya without having to worry about "non-defence issues".

    I'm sure we've all felt tempted to bring boys home when the wife is stranded abroad.

    Why does anyone care if he is or isn't?

    Oh there's plenty of other stories including one that involved getting students drunk in Paris and one of them "sleeping on the sofa in his room".

    Yeah, right.

    Oh, I don't know, maybe a few people care, considering he's the Defence Secretary.

    Think Jeremy Thorpe.

    It's not a case of 'he is or isn't'. It boils down to whether he has lied, or misled. All the indications are, that he has done both. So therefore he should resign.

    Governments are a reflection of their populations. He'll be promoted. He's certainly receiving lots of support from his fellow MPs.

    If he comes out, they'll be queuing up behind him offering their firm support. He's guaranteed to get a warm hand on his entrance.

    Of course he'll get plenty of suppoprt from his fellow MP's. This is because they are no differnt from him' and can't see what he's done wrong. They all lie and mislead.

    There's more rear door connections here that will emerge.

    Including one to Kevin Spacey that the press hasn't gotten hold of yet.

    Is it bad to have a Defence Secretary with dress sense then?

    No, but it's very bad to have a Defence Secretary who can be compromised, by a foreign power for example.

    John Profumo ring any bells?

    if he has campaigned on a platform that portrays him as a heterosexual god fearing family man - but he is just a common public school boy fag

    then he should be dumped.

    there is an Australian , victorian MP to whom this applies also

    They'd never get in power if they didn't lie or mislead.

    .... and there's another minister now who apparently thought it was a good idea to routinely dispose of parliamentary papers and correspondence in litter bins in St James Park!

    BBC News - Oliver Letwin apologises for dumping papers in park bin
