It’s already coming true! First two, then six, and now 8 aides have resigned over Blair’s continuing refusal to set his departure date – including one named Chris Mole, who’s probably tired of all the jokes that get made whenever something’s leaked to the press. Come on guys, all we need is a few more (and more senior) resignations and he’s toast. Margaret Beckett: you look like a gal who’d transfer her allegiances in a second – let’s see your P45 pronto. Ruth Kelly – useless lightweight you may be; here you can finally be of some use. Odds are still on him continuing into 2007, but it’s just possible Blair won’t last the month.
