    People are assuming this is down to the julia thing but surely its not as that would be very silly. I think theres somethings darker he's hiding that he wants to be kept under wraps. Thoughts?..

    EDIT: Gavin Williamson named as successor

    He has resigned as Defense Sec (still a Tory MP though so no by-election or anything).

    Interestingly it also emerged that Crabb was going to re-appointed when May became PM but he could not guarantee to the whips that there would be no further dirt.

    I know that now, but I'm now wondering about what else they will find

    He may have done similar things to other women. Almost certainly has.

    But you were talking about something "darker." That implies rape or sexual assault a la Weinstein. Pus sy grabbing and the like.

    He is very unpopular with the Brexiteers, they may have kicked him while he is down.

    Damian Green is similarly hated by the Euro Sceptics and also under pressure.

    Could be a coincidence, I suppose.

    I feel like its more than a coincidence but i guess only time will tell, what ever it is, its bound to come out.

    Imagine his wife has given him some grief over kneegate. And they've just had to discipline a submarine commander for some underwater shenanigans. But wouldn't rule out there being worse scandal to come.

    More likely he did something to upset May and so he "resigned" and we will almost certainly see him replaced by a loyalist in the morning, what has come out so far is not something to resign over and his letter sounded very "sign here please"

    Don't be absurd, the optics of this are terrible for May. There's more dirt to come. He's listed on the leaked dossier for his drunkeness, 'odd sexual penchants' and sexual relations with MP Mike Freer.

    Ah! You look like a good candidate to explain some of the thinking behind calls for resignations and sackings for such behaviour.

    Is any attempt to go out with/seduce/approach someone sexually a resignable/sackable offence?

    If not, what is the threshold for a sacking?

    Logically, shouldn't someone caught remain unemployed and unemployable thereafter?

    Why resign/be sacked from a current job when the behaviour was perpetrated in a job many years ago?

    Will such a person have to resign from the next job?

    Having left one job for such behaviour, will there have to be a fresh resignation if further historical naughtiness is discovered.

    Being a despot has many benefits.

    It is really quite interesting to see how unfettered regressive liberalism is tearing the western world apart.
