Hain’s special advisor resigns to concentrate on main task ahead..

As Mick noted below, Guido reports that the Secretary of State for Wales etc, Peter Hain’s special advisor Phil Taylor has resigned. The reason being given is that he will be campaigning for Mr Hain in his bid to become deputy leader of the Labour Party and to remain in his current position would be in breach of the Code of Conduct for Special Advisors.. as Guido had earlier pointed out. Although Guido’s also claiming that he has evidence that Mr Taylor was already doing just that.. Hmm.. If only others reacted in the same way when they were found to be in breach of their code of conduct.. We await the report on the Attorney-General’s Inquiry
