Brown to announce Iraq War inquiry
From the Press Association, Sunday, 14 June 2009:
The announcement, designed to bolster Mr Brown's standing among MPs and activists who opposed the 2003 conflict, comes as the row over his leadership continues to rumble on. [...]Not anyone else in Parliament, eh? Tony Blair is not in Parliament. The timing of this article makes me think Mr Blair is back on the scene. Heh.
Business Secretary Lord Mandelson told the Sunday People he did not believe there was "anyone else in Parliament" as well-equipped to lead the country as Mr Brown, in comments the paper interpreted as a warning to potential rivals like Mr Miliband and Home Secretary Alan Johnson not to challenge him.
