I’m hoping that there’ll be a betting market up quite soon on whether David Laws will return to government as a minister.
Certainly the warm tone of David Cameron’s letter seems to indicate that this might be possible.
The PM concluded: “I hope that, in time, you will be able to serve again as I think it is absolutely clear that you have a huge amount to offer our country”.
Peter Mandelson, it will be recalled, had several comebacks. Clearly a lot depends on the Standard Commissioner’s report on the Laws case.
UPDATE: Betting opens on “Will Laws return as a minister”
