John Reid has conceded defeat then. I reckon he was always Blair's horse, hence his appointment to three different cabinet positions recently. They were clearly an attempt to make him employable; a jack of all trades and not just an ex-Chancellor like Broon. Unfortunately for Reid, Broon stitched him up. Who do you think leaked all the recent home office problems?!! Now Broon has made it clear that he won't even elect him to the cabinet when he gets in, Reid is going to bide his time and make a bid for the leadership when Broon gets kicked out in 3 years time. Anyone disagree?
