So David Laws has resigned as Chief Secretary to the Treasury after the Daily Telegraph rumbled him for claiming expenses to pay rent to his partner.
He didn't have much choice really.
His resignation came pretty swiftly which was refreshing when you compare with the last 13 years of Labour where dodgy MP's either kept their heads down until the next major headline or took a plum job in Europe before sneaking back in through the floorboards.
So was this new politics in action? Well we'll soon see won't we.
Given the new coalition Governments charter for cleaning up politics means giving voters the right to kick out MPs guilty of wrongdoing, somehow i doubt it'll happen.
