Chris Davies resigns

In case this gets lost in tonight's election coverage...

The BBC reports:

Lib Dem MEP Chris Davies has resigned as the party's leader in Europe over comments to a Jewish constituent.

North West England MEP Mr Davies told an e-mail correspondent he hoped she enjoyed "wallowing in her own filth".

By the sound of it, Ming has been merciless:

"I discussed this matter with him today, when we agreed that the proper course for him now is to resign as leader of the Liberal Democrat MEPs."

Later. Simon Mollan has all the details and offers some trenchant comment.
