Another Senior Tory MP to Stand Down
Tim Boswell, MP for Daventry, tonight announced he would not be standing again. He is the third senior Conservative to announce their retirement in as many weeks, following in the footsteps of Michael Howard and Sir Michael Spicer. Tim said that the boundary changes affecting his seat were a major reason for his decision, and if they did not go through he would change his mind. Ann Widdecombe has also talked of retiring but hasn't formally announced her decision yet. Full story HERE.
