Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

Mandelson said ...

According to Peter Hoskin in the Coffee House ...
Peter Mandelson has just tossed a firecracker in to the arena. Asked on the Beeb whether Labour might get rid of Brown to accommodate the Lib Dems, he replied:
"There will be a number of permutations ... I'm not ruling anything in, or anything out."
So, in other words: yes.
Actually, no!

There cannot be another 'unelected' Prime Minister.

Labour tried to win the election with Mr Brown in charge. They must have thought it was a good idea otherwise they'd have replaced him.

So, he has to stay.

If he goes, fine, and he can take his chums with him.
