Lib Dem MEP - 'I feel sorry for Giles'

. Politics Home reports Chris Davies, Liberal Democrat MEP, saying;

"I feel sorry for Giles in some ways because it is simply so easy for a members of the European Parliament from the day they arrive to get sucked into bad practice and after a little while what would be regarded as completely unethical by people working in other public organisations starts to become just normal practice."

Two thoughts spring to mind, this doesn't do an awful lot to recommend the European Parliament as an institution and secondly, it looks a bit bad to be defending the disgraced Conservative leader when his own boss, David Cameron, wont.

I don't think Chris is defending him, he's expressing sympathy.

There's a world of difference.

I have no sympathy for Giles.. it's not as if he is 16 and he's been caught smoking...he was on the make and on the take and got caught...
