Nigel Griffiths resigns
Nigel Griffiths just resigned as Deputy Leader of the Commons over Trident replacement.
Why now when this has been known to be the Government position for ages - indeed, was in the Manifesto?
Maybe they could replace him with John Mann who as Tom Watson's post today showed, has rather sounder views on this and ought to have been a Minister years ago.
I see this as a touchstone issue - it really sorts out the people who are serious moderates from those who haven't done the thinking on security issues - or have and have come to the wrong conclusions.
