Another Rejected Ministerial Post
Osborne Aide Quits to ‘Finish Book’

It wasn’t just Liam Fox who told Cameron thank you, but not thank you:

Rob Wilson has a 7,605 majority. Cautious?

            There’s a period of purdah laid down before ministers et al. can go off and fill their boots by selling the inside information they gained in government.
            So the trend now is to get out of government before the last minute, especially if you foresee being thrown out anyway, to start the meter running down, rather than waste time in the wilderness.
            See which directorates he takes up.

        Kiev has form. From the Wall Street Journal today: “In 2001, the Ukrainian military mistakenly shot down a commercial passenger jet that was en route from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk with a land-to-air missile that was fired during a military exercise. All the 66 passengers and 12 crew members on board the plane were killed in the blast.”

        They also have motive. They are getting pasted in the East and are desperate to bring in NATO.

    he didn’t turn down the post so he could finish his book, he’s already finished it. It’s arriving in hard copy tomorrow and downloading on to Kindles on Tuesday. Reading East MPs do sometimes write books. As his predecessor as MP for Reading East I take an interest in these matters.
