Jaqui Stiff, the cabinet minister under fire in Pornogate, has called for a major investigation into the death of a man at the G20 protests. "I am absolutely desperate to get myself out of the news. This guy's death has been an absolute godsend. Now I can go back to pretending that I am a competent politician."
Stiff has had a difficult time. First she was caught out fiddling expenses. Then her husband was caught out fiddling. Her political future hangs in the balance. Now it looks like some heavy handed bully boy police officer is going to be served up in order to save her job.
Political commentators were quick to voice their opinion. John Cole of the Nova Mews Policy Research Unit said "She is hoping that we will all forget her problems. Not a chance. If she thinks this can all be wiped away like her husbands goo off the tv then think again."
The man who died at the G20 protests was unavailable for comment.
