Brown will face PM challengers

There will be other candidates to challenge Chancellor Gordon Brown for the prime minister's job, a former Labour minister has said.
MP Frank Field said he believed Home Secretary John Reid would "certainly" be among those to challenge for a job widely expected to become Mr Brown's.

Tony Blair says his successor will have time to prepare for the next election.

Mr Field told the BBC Mr Brown "does not want to take over a government and a party which is just rubble".

Mr Field, speaking on BBC Two's Newsnight, said: "Well clearly, Gordon has a right to be part of that contest [to replace Mr Blair] and my guess is certainly one of the other candidates would be Dr Reid.
So, will it be a coronation , or a genuine blood on the carpet fight?
John Reid would make a good PM as he lies in a believable manner. Gordon Brown is a waste of space, he is a mumbling patronising idiot, if I can be so bold as to say, he s a kiss ass to the English in the way he tells us Scots to support England in their world cup bid, that in itself show’s how devious this man is. He is even trying to blag the English that he is their friend with these stunts. This man cares not for your or our country he simply wants the power.

I for one believe he has no right to just step into the shoes of PM, 2 Sh@gs I mean 2 Jags would make a good PM of this country. He is pretty grounded, even if his d1ck is not.
Depends on who does the challenging and how hacked off the left wing of the party is feeling. If Brown can make enough noises about leaning a bit more to the left than Bliar and buy off enough of the heavy hitters, he'll probably only have to face some no-name sacrificial lamb that's put up as a point of principal so that the whole affair isn't just a coronation. They might even arrange something like that anyway if they think people might be a little narked off over a straight handover of power. If one of the real backbench or Cabinet heavyweights wade in though and plant their flag firmly on the left wing of the party then there could actually be a bit of a tussle for the job.
Agreed Jon, with Battleaxes on Parliament Green.

Actually best not , Prezza would be the new PM :)
Prezza !
This person has the trappings of power for he is Blurs 'Conntact' with Old Labour who hate Blur more then I.
We have a family friend, decent person but Left, has been since his youth, wheren't we all.
He was offered a safe Labour seat but turned it dow as he could not stand Blur, his gang or what they stand for.
