Hoon update...

I tweeted earlier that I was expecting some sort of statement from Geoff Hoon today.

I’m still not sure exactly what it will say, but it seems as though it will be delayed until tomorrow.

Here is some background – at the meeting of his constituency party the other night some members wanted a vote of no confidence, I'm told.

Apparently this couldn’t take place because it was not on the agenda at the start of the meeting.

I don’t know how much support for it there was, but it looks like Hoon is liked in his own constituency Labour party, about as much as he is in the parliamentary one.

It feels like the writing is on the wall. I was told by another Labour MP that we could probably expect the member for Ashfield to stand down “very soon”.
