Keith Vaz’s political career hung in the balance on Tuesday morning, as Ed Balls predicted the Labour MP would have to quit as chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Committee.
Vaz will face MPs on the committee today to discuss his future after becoming embroiled in a scandal involving male escorts.
Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain this morning, Balls was asked whether he thought Vaz should resign. The former shadow chancellor said: “I think he will. I think in the end, yes.”
Vaz is facing a possible investigation by Commons’ sleaze watchdogs as the fallout from the Sunday Mirror story that he paid two male escorts for their services threatens to overwhelm his career.
