Hague v Brown

Fantasy Shadow Cabinet is the press game of the moment, and its certainly a bit of fun. A lot of articles and pundits make a comparison of the Blair / Brown relationship to the Cameron / Osborne relationship. This is going to be another one, with a twist. Brown was pushed to stand aside by Mandelson because New Labour’s prospects were, the Prince of Darkness rightly calculated, better under Blair. Brown reluctantly did so and New Labour went on to dominate the decade. Osborne should similarly stand aside in the interests of his party, he is simply not strong enough to oppose Brown’s steamroller at the dispatch box. Hague is brilliant in parliament. The Wilberforce book can wait William, your party needs you.

Brown has seen off endless shadow chancellors, Hague would not be so easily dealt with, Osborne needs to look into his heart and put his personal interest aside, (not an easy thing for a politician), tell his friend Cameron that he will take another role. Brown is Tory Enemy Number One, destroying him should be the priority, Hague should be given that job.
