‘Hazel Blears Must Go’ campaigners hand in an open letter at her constituency office (video)
On Friday campaigners from the ‘Hazel Must Go‘ campaign handed in an open letter at Hazel Blears’ constituency office.
Following the MPs expenses scandal, and due to dissatisfaction in some quarters about her record on local and national issues, the campaign group have asked her to stand down as an MP. The deadline they have set is the end of this month. After which they may look into fielding their own candidate in the general election in 2010.
A film-maker from the BBC was there to record the event and interview them for a Panorama programme which will be shown in December.
