NotesNews: "... Oliver Letwin, a minister in the Cabinet Office, has apologised after being photographed dumping work-related documents in public rubbish bins at a park close to Downing Street, but insisted that none of the ditched papers contained classified information. ... " The Guardian
News: "In the end, the defence secretary could defend himself no longer. Once he called the claims that his friendship with Adam Werritty had compromised his office "wild" and "baseless". Yesterday, he had to concede not only that "mistakes were made", as he passively put it last weekend, but that they were grounds for resignation. A man who once fancied himself a future leader and heir to Margaret Thatcher, with a world view too important to be constrained by pettifogging civil servants, had to send himself to the backbenches...."
