The Insider: Kearney Tipped to Follow Marr, the Case of the [Pounds Sterling]20 Shag, and Galloway Goes Home to Bed


Maguire, Kevin, New Statesman (1996)

Both have now won--on first ballots. So that's two more MPs to vote for Brown as leader.

Much to the consternation of Jane Griffiths (Reading East), the brothers and sisters are now suggesting the riposte she should have delivered to her fellow Labour MP Marsha Singh (Bradford West).
