It was plain for all to see how foolish Dr Liam Fox had been in his jaunts and exploits with his ‘best friend’ Adam Werritty.
He now stands accused of some pitiable self-delusion as well.
There we were thinking the collapse of his front-bench career was down to his arrogant disregard of the standards expected of those holding ministerial rank and above.
But no – it was the media’s fault, of course.
Apparently we worked ourselves up into a frenzy before pursuing him with ‘vindictiveness, even hatred.’
Nothing to do with the fact that he flouted the conventions of his office, put friendship before duty and ran the risk of compromising the security of the country he was being trusted to protect.
