Time for a “Portillo moment” in Blackburn?

The Guardian – Off with their heads: Alternatively, Muslim voters could make a point in Blackburn. Jack Straw was about 9,000 ahead in 2001, but this time he faces a Tory opponent in the shape of an anti-war Muslim, Imtiaz Ameen, and Craig Murray, the former ambassador to Uzbekistan, who cried foul over human rights abuses and was sacked by Straw for his pains. It’s a long shot, but the departure of the foreign secretary would surely count as 2005’s Portillo moment.

Could Jack Straw be the new Michael Portillo?
