Cabinet Minister Resigns Suddenly

October 28, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

Prime Minister Tony Blair's government suffered a major blow when Welsh Secretary Ron Davies suddenly resigned after an incident in a London park that left the nation guessing exactly what had happened. Davies said he had embarrassed the government by becoming the innocent victim of a crime when he was attacked and robbed by a man whom he befriended while out for a late-night walk. Blair's spokesman said Davies had "denied that this was anything to do with any sort of sexual encounter."
