Time to go

The list of resignations now reads: Tom Watson, Khalid Mahmood, David Wright, Ian Lucas, Mark Tami, Chris Mole and Wayne David.
Solid Labour men all of them. Old Right Trade unionists, machine politicians, lifelong activists; the sort of people that are needed to hold together any Labour government, and the sort of people who are loyalists by their very nature.
When people like that are calling on the Dear Leader to retire sooner rather than later, maybe he should listen to them, instead of branding them:

Disloyal, Discourteous and Wrong

As Khalid Mahmood pointed out in his resignation letter:

The party and the Labour Government's work is more important than any individual.

While I'm not a fan of public infighting, Blair has brought this upon himself.
