David Laws has spoken about how his recent sexuality outing via an expenses scandal has been a big comfort as he can now begin living who he is and not continue on with the lie.

The former Lib Dem Treasury Chief Secretary resigned after it was revealed that he had spent £40,000 of government expenses to cover rent costs to his secret same-sex partner James Lundie.

Laws has continued to insist that his decision to use expenses was not due to lack of money but solely to help him hide his double life, a decision he has since branded “stupid” because his family and friends have all been accepting of his sexuality since it became public.

According to The Sun, the MP for Yeovil, Somerset said about his previous lifestyle and his newly open and honest one: "We were in a strange no man's land that most people are not in, privately behaving as partners but not publicly.



"It was stupid really, because all of the people I've spoken to since have accepted it without hesitation - my parents, family and friends.

"Not being honest with them has meant a huge price over recent years."
