Leeds Labour MP quits and blasts government

. The air of almost perpetual crisis that hangs around this government is getting thicker by the day. Yesterdays Yorkshire Evening Post reports that Colin Burgon, Labour MP for Elmet, is to stand down at the next election. Burgon, who won the seat in 1997, also took a swipe at the governments handling of the economy;

"The 'New Labour' approach to the market economy is both wrong and lacks the kind of values that have served this party so well in difficult times in our history."

Coupled with Alice Mahon's resignation what we can see is a clear hemorrhaging away from Labour of it's core support. Of course, parties have to reach beyond their core support to form governments but without that core support they become an empty vacuum. The government is pretty much dammed either way so I would expect to see allot more similar announcements like this....
