The two-faced Cabinet

Siobhain McDonagh, the Labour MP who triggered the attempted coup against Brown last autumn, has said support expressed by Cabinet ministers for Gordon Brown did not reflect their privately held views:

I know that some of the Cabinet that have expressed that view don't believe it in private.

People have to decide about making a stand. I think James Purnell has been awfully brave and honest.

I do not believe that it is selfish individualism to want to have the best possible leader and the best possible ideas for the Labour party. That's what the voters want and what the voters have been telling us yesterday.

The question of Brown’s leadership is far from resolved if what McDonagh has said is accurate.  For now, the Cabinet are just going through the motions.
