MP Tom Watson resigns from shadow cabinet role as general election coordinator [View all]



Tom Watson has resigned from his shadow cabinet role as general election co-ordinator, he said on his blog today.

The move follows a continuing row over the party's Falkirk selection process.

The MP said he was stepping aside to safeguard "the unity of the party", and called for an internal report into the controversy to be published.

In a letter to Ed Miliband published on his blog Mr Watson wrote that: "Iíve thought about it and still feel it is better for you and the future unity of the party that I go now."
