Sayeed suspended from the Commons

Yesterday's Hansard carries a full report of the Commons' decision to suspend Jonathan Sayeed for two weeks.

Sayeed himself made a distinctly Vicky Pollard apology, and this was followed by a headmasterly contribution from Sir George Young, the chairman of the Committee on Standards and Privileges, which set out the facts of the case.

Note particularly his comment that:
The Committee on Standards and Privileges will need to reflect on whether he has responded fully to our recommendations that he apologise fully to the House in the light of some of his qualifications.
