I have repeated said and it bears a great deal more repetition that Labour was taken over by a coup whose ring-leaders were Blair, Brown and Mandelson.
Whatever their fights they all needed each other. Now yesterday's Mirror confirmed Mandelson's targetting of 10 Downing Street. Outrageous as it seems, we could have President Tony and Prime Minister Peter by March. Brown will be cared for with a prestige job - after all, imagine what he knows! - doubtless a role will be found for him at the G20. Even if Cameron wins the election in May or June as the "Heir to Blair" he will be safely surrounded as Peter will make sure the Labour party is in good hands, then he'll be off to President Tony's entourage.
