GET RID OF BROWN
KEEP CAMERON & CLEGG OUT
Is this the New, New Labour Message?
Not that I’d dream of putting words into Mr Blair’s mouth. And such a ‘coronation’ would not be what David Miliband wants anyway. Look what happened the last time! Apart from that he wouldn’t get it.
If Gordon Brown fails to win outright or more particularly fails to win a share of power both Ed Balls and Alistair Darling are likely to throw their hats into the leadership ring. And, if Mr Brown stands down after a Labour defeat, Harriet Harman automatically takes over as Labour leader.
So that’ll be at least a three-horse race.
The question begged by all of this is – what happens if Labour wins outright with Gordon Brown in place?
Do you think he’ll still go gracefully?
- Blair: I want Jacqui Smith re-elected and a Labour government
- Plan: David Miliband to replace Gordon Brown as leader
- Gordon Brown says he would take full responsibility if Labour loses
Happy Birthday to Tony…
Whatever happens on Thursday.
I noticed that too, but initially I decided to treat it with the contempt it deserves. But Julie also mentions this.
Presumably when he refers to business he means Africa Governance, bed nets, inte-religious organisations, sports academies.
Of course Brown’s lack of interest in business etc may just have something to do with the fact that he may not have the aptitude, nous or pulling power for any of it.
Unlike his predeccesor.
