Life after Gord

The kaleidoscope has been shaken and the pieces are in flux. Yes indeed. We refer, of course to the fascinating scandal which has acquired the name "donorgate". For an idea of how the pieces will settle again, we turn to The Speccie's Fraser Nelson (who better, frankly?). According to Nelson, there is conspiracy in the parliamentary Labour Party's ranks once more; MPs are asking a question which would have seemed unthinkable only a few months ago - who will replace the hapless Gord?
Nelson has penned an excellent peice on a very interesting subject. A couple of sentences stood out for me:
"One can only imagine the dismay of Alan Johnson, Health Secretary, when he heard his name being touted for this ‘caretaker’ role last week. This means he is a dead man."
Upon reading those words, a beatific smile settled on this aquatic creature's visage. If only, I thought.

Who better than a Tory idiot to foretell the future leadership of the Labour Party? Frankly Nostradamus had more of an idea than the average scribe on The Spectator.
