Back Him, Or He'll Sack You

A Blairite source tells Guido that last night Brown’s henchmen started calling ministers from 10 pm when Purnell’s bombshell exploded, demanding in no uncertain terms¬† that they publicly back Brown if they wanted to keep their jobs in today’s re-shuffle.

Caroline Flint, who is not a renowned fan of Gordon, issued a statement of support last night.¬† Might as well keep the ministerial pay and perks for as long as possible…

UPDATE : Is it only the Fink and Guido who are amused that last night Hutton released a statement saying Purnell had made the wrong decision to resign, before resigning this morning?
