I have resigned

There's plenty of political news today. For Labour Alan Johnson has resigned as shadow chancellor, Ed Balls is the new shadow chancellor. Tony Blair is back in the hot seat of the Iraq inquiry. For the Tories, Andy Coulson the prime minister's communications chief has resigned over further News of the World phone hacking allocations. And plans are being drawn up for a massive change to the management structure of the NHS.
So on the face of it it appears to be a better news day for the Liberal Democrats.
But wait.....
Breaking News
Bracknell Blogger has decided that today is a good day to bury bad news for the Lib Dems. I have had to resign from the local party executive in Bracknell because after the arrival of my new son I have decided to move out of the area and I simply do not have time to help and can not stand in the local elections in May.
I have enjoyed my time with the Bracknell Lib Dems. I enjoy meeting people and talking politics on the doorstep. I have also made new friends in the party and I will miss them. But all this will have to take a back seat for now. I wish them luck and I hope I will have the time to help again.


  1. Sad to see you move on, but I'm sure you'll maintain a backseat interest ;-)

  2. Bracknell not good enough for you now?

  3. Sad to see you go.

    Will the blog continue?

  5. I'll miss our little chats at the counts Daz. Good on you - family comes first. ALB.
