By-Election at Sedgefield

Tony Blair announced his resignation today not only as Prime Minister but also as a Member of Parliament. At a meeting late this afternoon at the Trimdon Labour Club Mr Blair announced his resignation as the MP for Sedgefield who he has represented in the Commons since 1983.

The by-election will probably be held in three weeks time (we shall know for definite tomorrow). As well as all the main parties putting up candidates there will no be a number of independents who will be keen to take advantage of the opportunity to make a point or two. As we have said before, watch this space.
