The damning poll in the Sunday Times
this morning reinforces Guido’s view (expressed at some length here
) that Darling is the fall guy for Brown and Balls. Darling will be blamed for their mess, Balls will be shuffled in to “resuscitate”
the economy just before the election in the hope that it will by then be out of the worst and Balls will be in a position to succeed Brown whether Labour win or lose the general election.
So they will need Darling to suffer meekly for another 2 years…
