Alan Johnson: I am not saying there's no circumstances.

Alan Johnson was on Marr and said:

I am not saying there's no circumstances.

when asked if he would be drafted or would stand for the leadership.  The clip (1m 50 sec for the relevant bit) and report of what he said have appeared with unusual speed on the BBC web site for a Sunday morning.

Johnson has given a clear indication that he would consider being leader of the Labour party at the next election.  The only question now is will Brown go or will he be pushed.

PS.  One other matter.  It is doubtful that there is a co-ordinated Blairite strategy being rolled out to unseat Brown at present.  June is the time for this, not now.
