If you see a Labour MP suffering from indigestion this afternoon it's probably because he has just encountered Gordon Brown in the tearoom in the House of Commons. Brown, I am told, hasn't toured the tearooms since he became PM. As Harold Macmillan once said: "It's a sign of desperation to appear in the tearoom". What can have prompted him to break the habit of a lifetime this lunchtime?
Admittedly, he probably came off slightly the better in PMQs this week, but I am not sure that is something he should gloat too much about. The last thing the Conservatives want is for Gordon Brown to be replaced. I suspect David Cameron will not bew firing all his guns at PMQs over the next few weeks.
