Boisclair resigns Parti Quebecois leadership


Following last month's drubbing at the hands of Quebec's electorate, the leader of the nationalists has announced that he is to stand down. The Parti will now seek an interim leader. In the meantime, the Liberal minority goverment has unveiled its priorities for its next term in office. The conservative ADQ, which was the big winner of an election that saw the other parties lose seats and support, is still revelling in its newfound position as HM Official Opposition in Quebec.

Resigning after losing an election seems rather old fashioned - Gordon Brown prefers to go into hiding!
