John Hemming "threatening to resign Lib Dem whip"

At least according to the Daily Express website he is - hence the scare quotes in my title.

Referring the failure of John's far-reaching (probably too far-reaching for its own good) private member's bill last week, the report says:
In his closing remarks at the end of that debate, Mr Hemming said: “The Government are being dangerously complacent about such issues as cover-ups, and my personal support for the Government will rest on a change of attitude by them to take such matters more seriously.” 
He confirmed last night that he was threatening to resign from the party whip.
