Stephen Crabb has scuttled off after only a few months as work and pensions secretary.
Isn’t it interesting that he went “in the best interest of [his] family” after having been a leadership contender himself?
Sure, there have been allegations about his private life – involving “sexting”, as This Writer understand it – but this could be a pretext. Perhaps he simply doesn’t want to work with Mrs May.
Would “sexting” have stopped him if he had been elected leader? It’s doubtful, isn’t it?
It would have been better if he had gone because he was a rotten work and pensions secretary, but we can’t have everything, it seems.
This was a man who thought homosexuality could be cured, and who thought people with progressive illnesses were capable of work.
He supported the bedroom tax and cuts in social security benefits.
He doesn’t have the best interests of UK citizens at heart.
It’s better that he be banished to the back benches.
Stephen Crabb has resigned as Work and Pensions Secretary following newspaper allegations about his private life.
New Prime Minister Theresa May is continuing to assemble her cabinet team.
Mr Crabb, MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire, who was promoted to the portfolio in March, resigned “in the best interests of my family”, he said.
Mr Crabb, who was one of several contenders for the Tory leadership who lost out to Mrs May, said: “Over the last two years I have had the huge privilege to serve in the Cabinet.
“After careful reflection I have informed the prime minister today that, in the best interests of my family, I cannot be part of her government at this time.
“I am grateful to my whole team for their hard work and encouragement. I look forward to supporting the government’s one nation vision from the backbenches.”
