Poor old Gordon Brown. He must never know quite where he stands with the prime minister. Only this morning, Tony Blair appeared to suggest during a TV interview that Mr Brown was secure in his job should Labour win a third term.
But then at Prime Minister's Questions, after a particularly ingratiating question from Labour backbencher John Grogan, he wavered again. Mr Grogan said people had the option of a two-for-one deal by voting Labour - a brilliant and experienced prime minister and a successful chancellor "with good future prospects".
But did the prime minister seize the opportunity to confirm his chancellor's prospects? No he didn't. He simply replied: "On that happy note, I wish everyone well."
Tony Blair would be really stupid not to keep Gordon Brown as his chancellor. Gordon Brown is the best chancellor I can remember. I lived through the boom and busts of Thatcher and Major. The stability that Gordon Brown has brought us is great. Part of the reason may be because the Bank of England is free to set interest rates, but the decision to free the Bank of England was his. Tony has made some really stupid decision in the past few years, but even he is not stupid enough to get rid of Gordon Brown.
