So Purnell has resigned and written a letter asking for Brown to step down for the sake of the party. He cares so much for the party that he:
1) colluded with the media to get this letter out just after local elections;
2) claimed for things like fridge magnets (£247), accountants (nearly £400) and thousands of pounds in rent on the public purse; and
3) did not resign immediately - as he should have done - when news about his expenses broke.
Perhaps he should reconsider whether he has enough honesty and personal integrity to continue doing anything remotely linked to politics.
