Now John Hutton's gone!
Isn't he the one who said Brown would be an "f-ing awful PM"? Looks like he was spot on. He could be very dangerous on the back benches. Could he be the stalking horse candidate that Gordon Brown must fear?
UPDATE: According to Nick Robinson, he has been planning to step down for a while and I am hearing that he is also to stand down as an MP. This could mean one of two things: either he has genuinely had enough and will go quietly or as he is going anyway he has nothing to lose by firing a torpedo into the side of the Good Ship Brown.
