Apparently the Lib Dem MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough, Phil Willis, has announced he is standing down as an MP at the next election. In his resignation letter he said,
"After 19 years as Councillor, Leader of the Council and Member of Parliament I have made the decision that I will not be seeking re-election at the next General Election. It has always been my aim to bow out of front line politics at the top and when I am doing the job as I want to do it."An interesting definition of what the "top" of front line politics is there methinks. Ming Campbell to step down next?
