Purgatory ends for perjury Tory Jonathan Aitken.

Did you see what I did there?

Anyway, it seems that Iain Duncan Smith is to announce the appointment of Jonathan Aitken as the head of a policy task force for the Centre for Social Justice. The task force will carry out a study into prison reform. Having been jailed for 18 months in 1999 for perjury, Aitken is uniquely qualified to lead the study.

Well good luck to him, he's commited the crime and he did his time. If he can use his exprerience to help shape a decent policy then all well and good. I do not however, believe he should ever be put back in a position that could lead to him being part of any future government.
