Well, she's gone. Or at least she's resigned from her Cabinet post; the good people of Basingstoke still have the dubious pleasure of being represented by Maria Miller, whether they like it or not (and some of them really don't - see these comments [H/T Wiggia at Nourishing Obscurity]).
It's quite understandable, given her message to them; there's more than a little ambivalence in 'I am devastated that this has happened...'
Now that there's less danger of becoming collateral damage, Peter Bottomley put his head above the parapet this morning to say in her defence that she had given an 'unreserved' apology.
Am I the only one thinking of this?
