….you’ve “resigned”. Yes, in an answer to many right-thinking people’s prayers, Ruth Kelly has resigned from Gordon Brown’s cabinet. Apparently, she wants to “spend more time with her family”. I’m sure I’ve heard that excuse before…
And apparently this has nothing to do with her opinion of Gordon’s (lack of) leadership, or any specific government policies. She’d discussed it at length with the PM.
But somehow, the Labour Party aparatchiks thought it appropriate to announce her departure at a press conference at 3am this morning. WTF? Talk about trying to bury bad news.
I think Ruth might be the first of many, spelling death by a thousand cuts for Gordon Brown and his miserably ineffective cabinet. A shame Milliband didn’t have the balls to stand against him and instigate a leadership challenge.
