Clare Short resigns 12th May 2003 http://www.femail.co.uk/pages/standard/article.html?in_article_id=180386&in_page_id=2 International Development Secretary Clare Short resigned from the Cabinet today, ending weeks of speculation over her future. The news follows a number of clashes between her and the Labour leadership, particularly over Iraq. Ms Short phoned Prime Minister Tony Blair to tell him she could no longer stay in the Government. A Downing Street spokesman said: "She rang the Prime Minister just after 10am this morning to resign." She had called Prime Minister Tony Blair's Iraq policy "reckless", but clung to office through the war. ©2003 Associated New Media Limited _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
