Alistair Campbell Resigns

Well it’s come a bit out of the blue, but he’s gone. I think it was fairly well expected that he’d be going some time soon, but while the Hutton Inquiry is still ongoing seems very unusual.
Does this take the heat off Geoff Hoon or the rest of the government? These are the questions we must await.
I’m listening to John Pienaar and now John Prescott on Five Live, and it’s become obvious that with the Hutton Inquiry running on for more time than expected, it was going to run into party conference season, so that’s why he’s gone now.
