Well yet another resignation - not from the Government this time, but Brighton and Hove City Council.
Paul Lainchbury, the absentee Tory who has missed every committee and community meeting for a year, has finally done the decent thing and resigned.
This means the Tories have just 25 of the council's 54 seats, and even with the support of former Tory Independent Jayne Bennett they can't rustle up as many votes as the Greens, Labour and Lib-Dems (who have 27 between them).
No-one really knows what will happen next, but there'll be a by-election and, possibly, a quick motion of no confidence in unpopular - and widely regarded as failing - Tory council leader Mary Mears.
Given that (a) it was a pretty close-run thing last time, (b) Lainchbury's record as a councillor making it pretty unthinkable that the Tories will hold his seat, (c) the demise of the Lib-Dems locally, and (d) with Labour losing elections all over the place, the smart money's on the Green Party's Alex Phillips winning the seat.
That would put Labour and the Greens on equal footing with 13 seats apiece. Interesting times.
