The London Standard
is pushing a story claiming that a cabinet minister is urging Yvette Cooper to stand as a “Stop Harriet”
candidate. Very amusing. If you believe the papers the list of candidates could see Miliband major versus Miliband minor as well as Yvette Balls versus Ed Balls. The list of runners for Gordon’s succession is said to even include Andy Burnham. Some of this press speculation can only be for the purposes of satire…
UPDATE : Ben Brogan points out that Cruddas is backing Harman in the Indy.
