    Tam Dalyell to stand down at election

    You have probably heard of Tam Dalyell, the longest serving MP in the House of Commons at present. The Guardian has this article:

    When asked if he stands by his verdict that Mr Blair is the worst of the eight prime ministers he has known, he amends it: "No. He is by far the worst." It is the presidential system he sees emerging under Mr Blair (the fault of over-large majorities, the prime minister's character and his well-documented disdain for parliament) that he loathes. Cabinet ministers used to have their own power base. "Gordon Brown is part of this duopoly. Can you name one other cabinet minister than him who is secure in their place?" he asks. This is why ministers do not stand up to No 10, why none asked to see the attorney general's written opinion on the legality of the Iraq war.
