Lib–Lab pact David Laws, chief negotiator for the Liberal Democrats in coalition negotiations, subsequently commented on Labour's preparation and conduct in negotiations - his main areas of criticism centred on Labour's lack of contrition about their record over the previous 13 years, inadequate preparation for discussions, their unwillingness to accommodate Liberal Democrat policy proposals in the potential programme for government, and the arrogant and patronising attitude of specific key Labour figures. Specifically he said that whilst Gordon Brown was quite serious about pursuing talks, he accused former minister Ed Balls of "sabotaging" the talks.
Antiochus (praepositus sacri cubiculi) Antiochus probably exercised his duties as tutor until 414, when Theodosius' sister Pulcheria took over. By ca. 421, he had risen to the post of "praepositus sacri cubiculi", head of the imperial bedchamber, and the exalted rank of "patricius". At about that time, he was dismissed from his palace posts by Theodosius, who resented his patronising attitude, probably after the emperor's marriage to Aelia Eudocia. His property was confiscated, and he was forced to retire as a monk to the Church of Saint Euphemia at Chalcedon, where he later died. His palace in Constantinople, adjacent to the Hippodrome, was also confiscated by the emperor.
