Is Laws writing himself out of a return to government?

A noteworthy snippet in Andrew Pierce’s column this morning:

"[David Laws] is hard at work on a book. The title – 22 Days In May – is hardly likely to set pulses racing, but the book will be the first insider account of the negotiations which led
to the coalition. Laws is also planning to cover the early days of the Government – days which, of course, include his downfall."

Not that this would completely scupper his colleagues’ plans to draft Laws back into government, of course. But, as we’ve seen with the spate of New Labour memoirs, insiders’ accounts do
tend to wait until the insider has left government for good.
