Apparently - assuming I've not been fed a line - something that has not really been commented on in the media about the resignations of yesterday is that two of them, Tom Watson and Mark Tami, share an office in the House of Commons. This show of solidarity between office workers is admirable, but I thought - given that little titbit - I'd have a look at the other resignations as well, and it looks like the flood of resignations may have been orchestrated entirely from the Watson/Tami office.
A quick look on the Amicus website lists the members for the West Midlands as, Tom Watson and Khalid Mahmood (note also that Sion Simon is in there too). For Wales we have Mark Tami, Wayne David and Ian Lucas. Next there is last night's resignation of Iain Wright. Now he's not a member of Amicus but is, assuming my snout is not lying, the flatmate of.... Tom Watson. David Wright is MP for Telford which is slap bang in errr.... the West Midlands.
So that's seven of yesterday's eight resignation all with a strong connections leading them back to Tom Watson's and Mark Tami's office. The only one I can't seem to link in is Chris Mole, who is MP for Ipswich, if anyone can link him in then do let me know. Of course, Mark Tami used to work for the Paymaster General at the Treasury and Tom Watson was previously the Treasury whip. What good lieutenants they are.
Update: Someone has just kindly linked me to this Fabian pamphlet, co-authored by Watson and Tami.
Update 2: It's appears that the missing link between Chris Moles and Tom Watson is that Watson is the Labour Party by-election man he ran Moles' by-election campaign in Ipswich. So there we have it, a group of orchestrated resignations leading back to one office that is undoubtedly looking upwards.
