In this respect I would like to thank him publicly for the assistance he gave my wife and I several years ago when we faced a seemingly impossible legal problem with the Home Office.

He did all he could and kept me well informed.

We were then in a position similar to Mr Hamilton's where we were deemed "guilty until proved innocent" but did not have the funds to legally challenge the situation, and so I can empathise with his predicament.

At this stage, I do not believe his behaviour is that of a man trying to hide something. He was willing to face the courts and now he is willing to face a parliamentary inquiry.

Until the facts come out in an orderly fashion, and it seems Mr Hamilton is perfectly willing for that to happen, we should judge him on his constituency work alone.

The crowd baying for blood on the strength of whispers and gossip invariably gets it wrong.
