Clare Short resigns

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.
