Sad to hear Chief Whip has resigned esp since he was such a great Int Dev Minister, but I think he has done the right thing for the Party.

John Woodcock is a shadow transport minister:

Manner of Mitchell resignation underlines how weak PM and Chx have become. Wonder if conference speech enough to stave off internal unrest.
