Esteemed No 1 Labour blogger and one of my favourite MP's, Tom Harris, is standing for election to the Shadow Cabinet.
And yes, this is a good thing and part of me hopes he is elected, but here is the rub.
If he is it's farewell to his blog
Which is a pity, as Tom writes well and is perhaps the best Labour blogger we have in terms of popularity, in articulating arguments (take a look at his latest post where he lays into Danny Alexander's speech), and in terms of keeping a moderate perspective on what the Labour Party is and should be.
In either case I wish him well, because whatever happens he will be an asset, either to the Shadow Cabinet, or to the blogosphere.
