Just as Gordon Brown is preparing sweet talk the news channels this morning, the Daily Mail has more bad news for him. Last night Labour MP Graham Stringer said that Cabinet ministers are privately plotting to replace Gordon Brown, this morning the Mail is reporting that Labour MP John McDonnell is telling friends he is ready to mount a 'stalking horse' leadership challenge. I hope when Brown is interviewed this morning he is asked about this unrest amongst his own party.
Will anyone fall for Brown's faux assurances and creepy smile this morning? I should hope not.
Gordon Brown will be on the Andrew Marr show on BBC1 this morning - I will be watching. Be there or be Albert.
