Rifkind Resigns Over Naked Bryant Photo Row

Sir Malcolm Rifkind has quit his position as president of Conservative Friends of Russia after the group got into hot-water for accompanying a story about Bryant with that photo. Chairman Richard Royal has apologised after his spat with Bryant last night made it into the Telegraph. Quite where Bryant got the homophobia idea of from aside, it was a PR own goal from the group.

Guido notes that Bryant has yet to address the original accusations though, so what is going on with the All Party Parliamentary Group for Russia?
