What is striking about the process of the resignation of Hain in comparison with the way Blair/Campbell (Alistair that is) handled this is that the whole of the lunch time bulletins are full of Hain’s resignation and in a few minutes his speech outside his former Dept. Blair would have had the replacement announced before the bulletins could start running, thereby sending the message ‘right problem over let’s move on’.
It is not as if Brown hasn’t had time to think about this.
