This Sunday get the papers and read the book pages. On Monday, Mark Stuart’s authorised biography of the late Labour leader John Smith is published. I’ve been skimming through a review copy and there is, shall we say, a lot of somewhat pertinent material on the current state of the Labour party leadership in there. Especially Chapter 21. And 25. From what I’ve read so far this looks like a must-read, and will undoubtedly spark yet another round of debate over the whole Blair/Brown thing.
