If Not Miliband, Who Will Challenge Brown?

Miliband has apparently told everyone he really means it and he won’t stand. So we are left with the joke candidacies of John McDonnell and Michael Meacher – who are unlikely to even manage to get 44 MPs to back their nomination.

Reid is wounded but circumstances can change, 40/1 currently on Betfair seems a bit too long a price. Particularly as he still very firmly refuses to rule himself out of the running.

Milburn (100/1) would be humiliated and knows it.

Charle Clarke (50/1) is bitter enough to give it a stab “to encourage a debate”, citing principle rather than ambition.

John Hutton (150/1) is another one – he is certain to be sacked by Brown, since he famously told Nick Robinson that “Brown would be a fucking disastrous PM”. As a result he is not going to feature in a future Brown cabinet. He is surely worth a few quid as a trading bet on Betfair? Guido has a few quid on him running as an outside bet. He is the only Blairite in the cabinet with the inclination to chance it.

Quote of the Day

Former public schoolboy Chuka Umunna told the  ‘Exit From Brexit Dinner’…

“Remainians, Remoaners, I don’t care what the label is, I’m proud. It’s fashionable to label everyone in this room as the liberal metropolitan elite . . . This caricature is promoted by a bunch of former public schoolboys!”
