Brown is the best man for the job of steering us through this current crisis, but this crisis will be gone by the next election, and Brown will steer the present Government to devastation...

Graham Marlowe

Hutton appears to be going to defence. Should be interesting. But I am surprised you are so happy to see Mandelsonm back: the man is sanctimonious and arrogant, and of course the unions will not be pleased.

Leaving all that aside, you can be sure he will become an arch-plotter if he and the PLP perceive that Brown's bounce is temporary. It seems a very dangerous move for Brown and smacks, frankly, of desperation. I really would feel unable to support Labour at the next election after all that has happened.

Paul Flynn

No Graham. I think this is a brilliant move.

Mandelson has done a fine job as a EU Commissioner facing down the French and German farmers. He was 'not guilty of anything' in his second resignation and he has great presentational skills that have absent in Government for the past 18 months.

I am delighted that Des Browne has gone. He could not retract on his manic optimism on Afghanistan. John Hutton should be shifted from Industry As he is completely bewitched by the Pied Piper of nuclear power.

Margaret Beckett is wasted outside the cabinet.

Graham Marlowe

It seems pale shadows dance in New Labour, too, Paul.

Mandelson returning to the cabinet?


Gordon Brown has finally proved that the last few weeks has pushed him over the edge and will soon be hearing the sound of white coats flapping in the breeze!

Paul Flynn

Lots of truth in that, timborne. Your 57 year old antennae must be finely tuned. I am very hopeful of holding on to my seat for different reasons than the one you suggest.

I was very impressed by Camerons emergency statement this morning, supporting the present Government in a time of crisis. He may be an ex public schoolboy with a bank account in Geneva, (well, maybe not the second bit, but you get the drift), but I do not hold that against him.
Gordon Brown was an excellent Chancellor, maybe the best we have ever had, you can't beat a Scotsman for sorting out finance. As a Prime Minister, he is the opposite. It is true what he said, our interest rates are still 5%, they were 15% on 'Black Wednesday' during the peak of Thatcherism. Brown is the best man for the job of steering us through this current crisis, but this crisis will be gone by the next election, and Brown will steer the present Government to devastation. This cabinet is full of women, whatever their gender. Paul, you may well hold your seat come 2010, because you are barking mad, (but your heart is in the right place). Young Kerry down in Bristol East may hold hers as well. My 57 year old antenna however says that you will be the lucky ones.
