Thing are looking increasingly grim for Elliot Morley with a party activist who campaigned for Morley when he was first elected threatening to stand against him as an independent if he doesn't quit.
If this sounds rather familiar, well so it should. This is an almost exact parallel of what happened at Tatton in the 1997 general election when a previously safe tory seat fell into the hands of a man who later described himself as "an accidental MP".
It's just rather unfortunate that Mr Maw felt the need to run around with his hands in the air screaming "The BNP are coming! The BNP are coming!"
Constituent may fight MP for seat
