LIAM FOX has been a fool. He may have been taken advantage of by a friend but he should offer to stand down.

Before Labour gets on its high horse it should consider its position in relation to Neil Kinnock and Peter Mandelson.

These two former EU commissioners are now Labour Peers who receive a very generous EU pension. This is dependent on their continued support and promotion of all things EU-related.

Effectively they are in the pay of a foreign government. I would suggest the Labour Party sorts its own scandals out before it starts mud slinging.
