Let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late

The whispering would appear to be turning into a growing rumble of discontent in the ranks, and you have to wonder if Prescott's plates are beginning to shift. The Cabinet members who urged Blair not to resign are probably those most vulnerable under a Brown leadership. Nothing wrong with a bit of enlightened self-interest I suppose. Everyone assumes Brown, but I suspect the anti-Brown lobby, including the most rabid Blairites, will be looking for the Straw man as an alternative.
