Full Fox Letter

The inevitable Dear David:

Dear David,

As you know, I have always placed a great deal of importance on accountability and responsibility. As I said in the House of Commons on Monday, I mistakenly allowed the distinction between my personal interest and my Government activities to become blurred. The consequences of this have become clearer in recent days. I am very sorry for this.

I have also repeatedly said that the national interest must always come before personal interest. I now have to hold myself to my own standard. I have therefore decided, with great sadness, to resign from my post as Secretary of State for Defence – a position which I have been immensely proud and honoured to have held. I am particularly proud to have overseen the long overdue reforms to the Ministry of Defence and to our Armed Forces, which will shape them to meet the challenges of the future and keep this country safe.

I am proud also to have played a part in helping to liberate the people of Libya, and I regret that I will not see through to its conclusion Britain’s role in Afghanistan, where so much progress has been made. Above all, I am honoured and humbled to have worked with the superb men and women in our Armed Forces. Their bravery, dedication and professionalism are second to none.

I appreciate all the support you have given me – and will continue to support the vital work of this Government, above all in controlling the enormous budget deficit we inherited, which is a threat not just to this country’s economic prosperity but also to its national security.

I look forward to continuing to represent my constituents in North Somerset.

Yours ever,

    About bloody time!

    Bled White Taxpayer says:

    Follow the Werrity. What he does next will confirm or deny “those” innuendoes.

  7. 7

    I’ll see you in 6 months for another job then, should be tagged on to that.

    Redpen says:

    I have been caught – and for this I am truly sorry.

    GideonO says:

    Verily, he should not have put his knob in werrity!

  10. 10
    The Establishment won says:

    Err in what way was he self serving? As far as I can see he was doing a great job, he has nothing but respect for our armed services and is a patriout.

    Unfortunately the civil service did not like him cutting out the fat from inside the MOD and constantly leaked and briefed against him.

  11. 11
    Well it's something says:

    Right who’s next?or should that be Huhne next.

    great job for the yanks and the y*ids – fuck all for the UK

    Osama the Nazarene says:

    Quite agree, but he was wrong to fight them in an underhand manner and should have taken Werritty on openly as a SPAD.

    What a plonker. says:

    Liam Fox has been a good hard working defence secretary ,that let his private life interfere with his public life . But when you compare his errors of judgement
    with the corrupt and self serving antics of the last Labour Government ,there is
    no comparison.

  19. 19
    Redpen says:

    And his fiscal life.

    Andrew Craig-Bennett says:

    Should have gone sooner, but, far more important, should never have done anything that would not withstand public scrutiny in the first place.

    Very underwhelmed.

    gildedtumbril says:

    Fox, do the right thing and hang your fucking worthless self.

  22. 22
    Old geezer says:

    Yes, he should have gone, but there is nothing more sickmaking than to see Labour Party crooks on TV pretending to be all self rightious, when they are into it up to their necks, and beyond sometimes. I suppose that they realise that they are so unimportant now, that the press will not bother to look at what they are up to.

  23. 23

    He should have joined the Liberals. Then he could have stayed in post.

  24. 24
    Adam Werrity says:

    OK Liam, you’ve written the letter. Now get back down there and start sucking my cock again.

    Liam, is there anybody in the gubmint that isn’t a queer cos I need a new rentminister?

    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    It would be an interesting academic exercise to count the number of lies in that letter – my guess would be around 20 starting with “I have always placed a great deal of importance on accountability and responsibility (technically there are actually two lies there) and finishing with “yours ever”

  36. 36
    Not surprised says:

    Bleaaeeuuaarrgghhhh!!!! That was me throwing up having read both letters Thick as thieves…and bent as a bottle of crisps!

    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    And shitting on people.

  38. 38
    I'm watching you says:

    Dear Dave,

    Sorry I got caught giving choice defence contracts to yank firms for money put in dodgy companies in Werrittys name. I promise not to get caught again. Well back to my sham marriage, hope another volcano blows its top so I can get another rent boy in. See you in 6 months after doing my penance.

    p.s. I’ve taken you off my xmas card list you spinless fucker.

    Randy Mandy - The Elder says:

    He wasn’t all bad – just here and there, mainly there.

    I have a soft spot for him. So do many of us.

    Let him without sin throw the first condom.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
