LABOUR big beast Tom Watson has resigned from the shadow cabinet, and penned a slightly odd letter to leader Ed Miliband.


Watson's letter contained some bizarre ramblings and even a recommendation of a band that he feels his leader should listen to.

He gushed to Miliband: "Iím proud of your Buddha-like qualities of patience, deep thought, compassion and resolve.

"I remain your loyal servant. Iíll always be on hand to help you if you need me.

"I just donít think you need me in the Shadow Cabinet any more.

"After nearly thirty years of this, I feel like Iíve seen the merry-go-round turn too many times.

"Whereas the Shadow Cabinetís for people who still want to get dizzy."

He then made his musical recommendation.

Watson added: "John Humphrys asked me why you were not at Glastonbury this weekend.

"I said Labour leaders canít be seen standing in muddy fields listening to bands.

"And then I thought how terribly sad that this is true.

"So: be that great Labour leader that you can be, but try to have a real life too.

"And if you want to see an awesome band, I recommend Drenge."

Watson, who played a key part in bringing phone-hacking claims to light, quit his post as general election co-ordinator in the wake of the growing Falkirk candidate selection scandal.

It's claimed that the Unite union is attempting to use its influence to "stitch up" the process to get their favoured candidates in roles so that they can have more influence over Labour policies.
