Hoon says Blair must go before next May

The civil war at the heart of the Labour Party goes on it seems. This time Brownite Minister, Geoff Hoon, has used Friday's Evening Standard as a platform to have a pop at Blair and call for him to step down sooner rather than later. Hoon told the Standard he thought if Blair went next May it would be too late.

"Having set the outer limits of how long he is staying, that still leaves questions in the context of the elections in May. A lot of people will be asking if it makes sense for him to carry on through those elections,"

I wonder what odds you can get on Blair resigning at the Conference podium?
