Turia resigns

My spies in Wellington ( am in Thames as I type this!) report that has resigned from Parliament.

am told Radio Watea reported that she has decided to resign from Parliament over the foreshore and seabed issue and that the news was announced at 3pm on Radio Waatea 603am.

Turia is holding a press conference at Ratana Pa.

A must be held between 4 and 8 weeks from now. May knock the bribes off the front pages. The Pm effectively will decide the date.

UPDATE 1: NZPA has a story.

UPDATE 2: Turia resigns on 19 May so election will be late June or July.

UPDATE 3: Clark has just sacked Turia from Cabinet and the Executive.
