So Stephen Byers has finally been shown, once and for all, to be the lying little creep everyone thought he was. He has now misled the Commons on two separate occasions. Once is a resigning matter. How on earth can Blair continue to support this lame dog of a Secretary? He by now must have forfeited any respect he might have had from his civil servants. He clearly is of very limited intellectual gifts and is totally out of his depth in a Ministry of State. If he'd been given a nice easy sinecure like Under Minister of Public Toilets then he'd probably have been fine. One of Blair's manifold faults is backing his cronies even when they've lost every shred of credibility (q.v. Mandy, twice). On second thoughts, long may Byers be an excruciating fistula in Blair's bum.
