We can add Fraser Kemp to our 'Chicken Watch' list of Labour MPs deciding to quit. At the age of just fifty he offers another proof of the disillusionment within the parliamentary Labour Party.
The Conservatives have already selected Robert Oliver for the seat of Houghton and Sunderland South; a projected Labour majority of more than 17,000.
Hat-tip to Iain Dale.
8.30pm: Another MP we'd missed from ChickenWatch is Neil Gerrard. Stella Creasy (Facebook) was selected to replace him as the party's candidate for Walthamstow. She was selected from an all-women's shortlist.
