Still, he wouldn’t be the first whose private life caused his decline.
It’s interesting to note that, according to this report, Mr Danczuk is still under suspension from the Labour Party, after more than seven months.

MP Simon Danczuk was arrested in Spain following an alleged incident involving his estranged wife, the BBC understands.
It is understood the 49-year-old spent the night in a police cell in Alicante.
