Hain resigns: Oh Dear, How Sad, Never Mind
He supported the illegal bombing of Yugoslavia. He defended the genocidal sanctions on Iraq. He supported the illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003: and even had the nerve to try and blame the French government for the war.
His name is Peter Hain. A careerist politician who sacrificed every principle he ever believed in in order to cling on to office. On the day that he leaves office due to a corruption inquiry, one phrase springs readily to mind.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
