The way in which the news of Lord Myners' resignation has been released is "symptomatic of the tumoil at the Co-Op.
The former City minister tended his resignation earlier this evening and that there was an agreement to release this information in an 'orderly way' tomorrow but somebody left the meeting and immediately leaked it to the press.
A similar tactic forced chief executive Euan Sutherland to walk out after details of his salary were leaked to the press last month.
There is "enormous hostility" directed at Myners and Sutherland, who are outsiders brought into help modernise the Co-Op's "catastrophic governance structure."
