I can't say I'm surprised that Campbell has resigned, there has been speculation of it for weeks now. Has he jumped ship before the Hutton inquiry could force him out or is it just what he says, that he's leaving to devote more time to his family? I don't know. I'm far from convinced that he had nothing to do with the dossier but I don't believe there will ever be anything incriminating against him. Not that it matters. The king of spin is gone. Will his successor be any better?
One quote that did tickle me was this:
"...He said there were "huge upsides" to his job, including "the knowledge that you are witnessing history in the making"..."
Some might say he was more a witness to the making up of history.
