Annette King Keeping Seat Warm?

Rather than ending speculation, Andrew Little has set tongues wagging around town with his announcement that he won't be seeking election in 2008. But look at the formulation used about the future:

However, he is not ruling out standing in 2011 or earlier.
"I don't rule out anything either then or beforehand."

As we commented over the weekend we can't quite figure why Annette King is wanting to stay on. Now we know. She is keeping the seat warm for Andrew. Watch this space, the next David Lange is about to be born. High profile by-election due some time in 2010?
