  1. #1 Kelly to step down from cabinet (Great Britain)

    Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly is to step down from the government at the next cabinet reshuffle.

    The mother-of-four told the Labour conference it was time to "step back" from politics and put her family first.

    There had been reports she was unhappy with Gordon Brown's leadership, but she described him as a "towering figure".

    Mr Brown told the BBC Ms Kelly had informed him of her plans in May, adding: "There are no political issues between Ruth and me."

    Mr Brown, who sought to reassert his leadership in his conference speech on Tuesday, denied suggestions more resignations might follow.

    She also used to be education secretary. This comes as Labour is trying to break out of the downfall they've been having as of the last two years. :eek:

    Labour is experiencing the post-charismatic figure breakdown (Blair) similar to the Dims in 2000, after Clinton.

    I'm not sure, unless it's a liberal thing, anyone remember John Major? That guy made Gore look cool, and he stayed in power for seven years after Thatcher.

    Wish her boss would go, too.

    The Conservatives have got a 25pc poll lead at the moment. Yet we have to wait until 2010 to get rid of Brown.
