resigns due to ‘…it has become clear the HS received letter saying the nanny would have to wait 9months – he passed that onto an official’, which is improper.
..statement due soon.
Johnnie – I have just got back in but I heard Mark Mardell on PM saying he’s heard strong rumours that the resig will happen tonight.. ..after that it’s just a formality. ..I may have typed it before it actually happened..! but news24 were saying ‘has resigned’ before sky. …bbc just showed a live shot of blunkett about to give taped interview. …stand by!
