Gordon Brown stepping down
Just got in to the news that Gordon has said he will stand down. Quite a shock and there are probably more to come. Its a good job we got an NEC meeting arranged for tomorrow-vital that NEC members stay in touch with and reflect party opinion. We have to do whatever we can to protect public services but need to ensure we don't put everything we believe in at risk. Instinctively I am against coalition government and would take a lot of convincing.
Cabinet meeting at 6pm so we will probably learn more then. In person Gordon is a smashing man, principled and caring. He has done an incredible amount for people, both in this country and for the very poorest abroad. When he goes we will miss him.
