Congleton Guardian: Two ministerial aides have quit in two days Two ministerial aides have quit in two days

A second ministerial aide has quit the Government in the space of just two days.

Conservative MP Richard Graham has said he is standing down as parliamentary private secretary (PPS) to the Foreign Office Minister Hugo Swire.

Writing on his Twitter feed, he said that he wanted to focus more on regeneration issues in his Gloucester constituency and his other roles such as David Cameron's trade envoy.

His announcement came after David Burrowes said yesterday he was quitting as PPS to Environment Secretary Owen Paterson "in the best interests of my constituents and our party".

Must investigate this?
Why are they standing down now just before
The reshuffle David is having to do?
I think I know why so they can keep a job and
Not get the boot of David this jobs will be filled
With David’s little yes men now.
Or it will open the doors to the woman party members
To get a foot in the door?
Let’s face it any way there will be a lot more going in 2015
