Lords Peter Mandelson and Andrew Adonis yesterday both quit the Labour shadow cabinet.
On any other day these resignations would have been major news, I have to confess I didn't even notice them despite being on twitter and having my nose in the news websites all day.
What is also surprising is the, quite honestly pathetic, reasons given for them quitting.
Labour said it was "very difficult" to act as a shadow cabinet minister from the House of Lords.
How is it possible to be more difficult now as a shadow minister than when they were the actual cabinet ministers?
When it suited Labour to have the Government Ministers sitting in the House of Lords it seemed to work fine, now it no longer suits them, the shadow ministers jump like rats jumping from a sinking ship.
I am sorry this is more about Peter Mandelson retiring from Labour politics isn't it? He realises that because of the new politics of the coalition government, Labour are now going to be out in the wilderness for at least a decade and he doesn't want to hang around that long.
I suppose he can look back with pride, this is the third time he has quit front bench politics, however it is the first time it was his own choice though.
