Oh what a surprise, taking pot shots as Blair's policies whilst sucking up to Brown. Who ever would have expected that? And of course it's got nothing to do with Blair being on the way out and trying to inveigle his way into Brown's good graces as the almost assured new PM. Reminds me of the political sketch from yesterdays Times. The Curse of Gordo! I'm expecting to see a lot of further outbreaks in the Cabinet in the coming months.
