I quite like the sentiments behind this post by Paul Linford, another blogger based in Derbyshire, about the rising tide of support for Alan Johnson to oust Gordon Brown by September.
Nothing against Johnson - he has the 'common touch' and does not appear to be dangerously ambitious. Where I do start to worry is the suggestion that the coup would be led by Bananaman, David Miliband. I just don't see it happening. Still, anything to stop Harperson or Balls getting anywhere the levers of power.
All this is predicated on the hope that Brown is carted off by the men in white coats and/or takes the job of Lord High Clever Financial Regulator for the World - which is also being touted as an alternative denouement for the worst Prime Minister for 250 years.
