BREAKING: James Purnell Resigns

Stalybridge and Hyde MP, James Purnell has joined his fellow Blairites in resigning from his position as Cabinet Secretary of State for the Department for Work and Pensions in a daming letter to Gordon Brown calling for his resignation.

Purnell was out this evening leafleting outside Broadbottom Railway Station with Roy Oldham, Sean Parker-Perry and Jonny Reynolds. He later got in a clapped out silver car with rusty red megaphones shouting "vote labour". How the mighty have fallen...



UPDATE: Just spoken to a journo at Sky News. He stayed at Jonny Reynolds house last night! Why? It is only 0.9 miles down the road. Ah that maybe why...

UPDATE UPDATE: BBC & Sky saying that Cllr. Kevin Welsh, Chair of Stalybridge & Hyde Constituency Labour Party is spouting that "Purnell has made a mistake".

Stay tuned...

A clapped out silver car is a real come down from a chauffeur and ministerial limousine. Still, if you're caught fiddling, there's no honourable thing to do but resign.

Let's just hope he's gone for good this time next year!!

Purnell is a devious little shit, nothing less. There is one simple reason why he resigned, and that is that he expected all the other right wing Blairite scum bags to follow him in order to bring down Brown, and all this because Brown has moved the party back to it's natural centre left position. Purnell's arrogance is breathtaking
Once a scum bag always a scum bag!
