Gordon Brown's Schooldays
I reviewed the papers on Sky this morning and spent some time analysing the Blair/Brown spat. I think Brown realises he has overstepped the mark, but the most interesting aspect of this saga is that Brown has apparently told Blair "I can't believe a word you say anymore". It is interesting to wonder why Blair hasn't sacked him. It's weakness. We're now entering Blair's twighlight weeks. I am also beginning to wonder whether Brown will be the shoo-in everyone thinks. I was talking to a Labour Minister friend of mine the other day and he asked who I thought should succeed Blair. My answer? Hilary Benn. You read it here first. What surprised me was that the Minister agreed with me 100%. I can just imagine the tears that would flow down his Father's face.
