Now that Gordon Brown has his feet under the table, I think it would be useful if he could set out a clear timetable for his departure. Or, at the very least, come to some informal agreement with David Miliband in a fashionable London restaurant.
When I chaired Holborn & St Pancras Constituency Labour Party back in the early-mid 90s, David used to attend the meetings. I sometimes bumped into him in a launderette in Primrose Hill and we'd make small talk as our smalls went round in the drum.
He's now the Foreign Secretary and I write Washed and Ready to Eat. This probably says a lot about both of us. But let's be fair. He's a few years older than me, so he has a head start.
