Why Charles Clarke Will Toe the Brownie Line
Following on from the earlier story about the anti-Brown briefings by former Blairite cabinet ministers, I thought it odd that Charles Clarke was, according to Ben Brogan, stomping around in annoyance. Could his anger at being lumped in with the likes of Milburn and Byers have anything to do with the fact that he's being lined up to replace Mandelson in Brussels and knows that anything other than blind loyalty to the Brownies will scupper his chances? I am told his constituency party in Norwich South is already lining up a successor.
