Opting out...

rat leaving sinking shipI've mentioned this before but no harm in reiterating things: I seriously think that the stampede* of MPs stepping down is an intentional effort to thwart the Conservative gains in the marginals: Labour MP Laura Moffatt is quitting in UK's most marginal seat leaving just weeks to find a new candidate before the general election....but I think this is a ploy to enable Labour voters and waiverers (probably far more of those) to give the new entrant a chance rather than 'punish' the incumbent.

* See epolitix list HERE: 93 Labour MPs quitting so far (all other parties add up to 52)
