Chris Myers, the Foreign Secretary's Special Adviser, has stepped down complaining about the press innuendo. I feel sorry for the guy, but not sorry that the story has been followed.
I repeat: what Mr Hague is accused of is, having been told by the Prime Minister to employ only two Special Advisers, employing a third who was less qualified for the job than several others. It doesn't matter a jot if Mr Myers was employed because he was gay, because he made Mr Hague laugh or because he was good at Scrabble.
Hague has made a buttock-clenchingly awful statement about how he is not gay and how his poor wife has had miscarriages, but I am afraid he still has some explaining to do.
