It sounds like an honourable thing to do, but me being a bit of a conspiracy theorist, wonder if he has resigned to take the heat of the Baroness. After all it's filling the MSM and the blogosphere.
Stephen Hesford, MP for Wirral West, has resigned in protest as parliamentary aide to Baroness Scotland, the Attorney General, after she was allowed to keep her job despite being fined for employing an illegal immigrant as her housekeeper.
I shall watch the New Year honours list with interest.
Lord Hesford of Wirral West maybe.
