Just a fortnight ago Hazel Blears MP was 100% against the idea of resigning from her Ministerial role, now reports are emerging that she's tendered her resignation. Though no-one seems sure whether this is effective immediately, or from reshuffle as the Jacqui Smith announcement. Meanwhile we can report with some certainty that twelve months ago Liam Gallagher asked the barber for a Blears rather than an Asher.
UPDATE 11:08: It seems to be instantaneous. Labour List have the Hazey spiel. Hat tip: @smithsky1979.
