Resignation fever

Colin Powell's out, apparently - with more on the way (Rumsfeld anyone?). And with the rumpus over Boris Johnson rumbling on I'm beginning to wonder whether it's silly season. Below is a list of my favourite resignations. A special mention for any memorable resignation stories readers are willing to share:

1) Geoffrey Howe, 1990
2) Peter Mandelson (both times...and I'm including his 'scary' comeback in Hartlepool)
3) Edwina Currie, 1988
4) Richard Nixon, 1974 (token US effort, not very memorable)
5) Margaret Thatcher, 1990 (Oh, the tears!!!!)

Update: OK, so maybe not Rummy...
