Yesterday's interview with Charles Clarke in The Independent made an interesting read, esp when he suggests David Miliband would make a good Prime Minister, but neatly sidesteps the suggestion of supporting Gordon Brown.
Aside from the fact that Miliband has stated his support for Gordon Brown, Clarke wasn't quite this coy some months ago was he! He has also stated that the recent call for debate that he and Alan Milburn have launched is not used to scupper Gordon's chances.
Thing is, I agree we need a leadership election, that we need a debate, but I am sure I can be forgiven for questioning the motives behind what Milburn and Clarke are doing.
The whole issue and lack of transparent honesty just shows a degree of cowardice and a lack of respect from the electorate. If you want someone substantial to challenge Gordon, just say so or shut up and stop behaving like a pair of stereotypical politicians!
