Does Gordon want to help?

The discussions on the financial package do not seem to be progressing well. Mitchell Mclaughlin has attacked Gordon Brown, claiming that so far no new money has been offered by the Treasury. Eyes will be on the budget to see any indication of movement, if not, the focus will be on tomorrow’s meeting to see if Gordon pulls a rabbit out of his red box. Finances are tight but the Brown Blair feud wouldn’t extend to sabotaging devolution, or would it? Perhaps it is just Stalinist negotiating tactics?
