Seems I now don't need to worry about who to vote for in the
Labour leadership election after all. John McDonnell has
tonight conceded defeat in the nominations process - he was
16 nominations short of the required 44, while Gordon Brown
has eceived the backing of 308 Labour MPs, a figure which
makes it impossible for anyone to stand against him and
means he will now become Labour leader and enter Number 10
unopposed. That was a bit of an anti-climax, wasn't it?
