The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

And there he was gone!

The results are in and its an away victory for Chris Grayling MP. Blunkett wasnt going to go - but the pressure kept mounting until he effectively had no choice. Im not one to kick a man when he's down - but I'm sure Mr Blunkett won't be short of job offers - and Tony is sure to look after one his "own". You only have to look at one Peter Mandelson.

The question is where next for Blunkett?

    I think Blunkett had to go not because of the scandal, but because Blair wasn't willing to shield him. Reforming incapacity benefit is a major part of the Blair third term programme, and Blunkett was standing in the way of that.
