Another Key Labour Figure Set to Stand Down.

This time it's former Education Secretary and Home Secretary David Blunkett.

Mr. Blunkett has represented the safe Labour seat of Sheffield Brightside since June 1987.

He said the Labour leadership needed "new faces" but warned that if Ed Miliband did not win next May's General Election the party "could be in opposition for 15 years."

Ed Miliband paid tribute to David Blunkett by calling him "an amazing asset" to the Labour Party.
