What Gordon Will Do Next
Danny Finkelstein speculates on Gordon Brown's policy priorities. None of these are hugely eye catching. I have always thought that in his first few weeks he would announce a couple of really eye ctaching policies which would make a clear break with Blair. I used to think he'd announce a pull-out in Iraq. I don't anymore. But I do think he will do one or more of these three things...
1. Announce the ID cards project will be scrapped
2. Announce that there will be no super casinos
3. Make a dramatic gesture towards restoring the power of Parliament
