Kitty Ussher resigns as minister

The BBC reports tonight:

Treasury minister Kitty Ussher has quit the government after further questions were raised about her expenses.

Ms Ussher took the step amid reports she flipped the designation of her second home shortly before selling it in 2007, avoiding capital gains tax.

Ms Ussher denied she did anything wrong and said she was stepping aside to prevent the government embarrassment.

Later. There is more on the Daily Telegraph site.

Is she related to the Archbishop who calculated the date of Creation?
