Darling, I will forgive you anything
Alistair, I will forgive you anything if you just have a chat with the lads about mounting a palace coup whilst he is out of the country- he is not going to apologise or show any contrition. You are the Chancellor that has dropped a bollock as far as he is concerned, not him- you will go down as the worst Chancellor ever in British History, because Gordon is off loading the blame to you. I know you are losing sleep over this.
You will be in our prayers tonight, think of all those foreign trips that did for other PM's Callaghan's 'Crisis what Crisis' trip to the West Indies, Margaret's trip to Paris.
You will be feted as a national hero, the man who brought Brown down, you can be Geoffrey Howe to Gordon's Thatcher.
If the others cannot agree to depose him, you must resign as a matter of principle- or be consigned to the History books as the man who broke Britain, instead of Gordon.
Now is the time, strike hard and strike true, be a man of destiny.
