    I didn’t like him in government, from wiki:

    He was promoted to serve in the Government after the 2005 election as a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, with responsibility for implementing the Identity Cards Act 2006.

    In June 2008, he had to apologise to the director of pressure group Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti, after she threatened to sue him for libel for smearing her reputation.

    In late 2008, Burnham announced Government plans to crack down on the Internet, tightening up controls in order to “even up” what he claimed was an imbalance with TV regulations.
