Alistair Darling is "not, not interested"

That didn't talk long.  Following yesterday's speculation, Alistair Darling has appeared on Straight Talk to rule himself out of any post-election leadership role:
No, no. I’ve always made it clear that I’m not, not interested in that [caretaker role] at all.

You’re asking me about leadership and I’ve got absolutely no ambitions there at all, not even for a few minutes.
David Miliband, who has been superb during his media performances this week, remains the only option if Labour is to have a long term future as a political force.  But there could still be a role for Alan Johnson.  It all depends on what happens after polling day.

The AJ/DM4PM/LO committee will issue further statements in due course.
