    Brown's supporters say it's time for the leadership push

    The Indepedendent today reports that supporters of Gordon Brown are apparently urging him to begin his push to take over from Blair, following the French rejection of the EU constitution. Of course, Brown is considered slightly more Eurosceptic than Blair:

    One former minister called on Mr Brown to make a move to prevent Mr Blair driving forward the reform agenda that will see the private sector playing a greater role in the NHS and schools. "The referendum was the last rational reason for Gordon Brown to postpone the transfer, but that has now disappeared," the former minister said. "Blair is going to continue messing up the health service with the private sector and education with city academies. That is sufficient reason for Gordon to start manoeuvring."

    Um, doesn't Labour elect their leader or does "New Labour" rely on appointments ?

    A good question anonymous. It certainly appears as though New Labour likes its appointments.
