McDowell gets most of the early backing…

Red Rover Simon notes the early breakers for the front in the PD leadership race are mostly (though not all) backing the controversial Justice Minister, Michael McDowell. Notoriously independent of mind, is he the one who Bertie had in mind yesterday when he said, “he would expect to get a clear commitment from the new PD leader that they would complete the agreed programme for government until the next general election”. It will make for an interesting ride if he does get the job. Brown Blair, how are ya!!
