Watson recommends band Drenge in resignation letter

Tom Watson has recommended Labour leader Ed Miliband listen to the band Drenge in his parting comments of his resignation letter.

In his letter, he told the Labour leader: "John Humphrys asked me why you were not at Glastonbury this weekend. I said Labour leaders can’t 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."
