Johnson in a dither

Sources close to the Hain campaign could barely disguise their political glee at conference yesterday- whooping with joy as it seems that their man will get an unchallenged run for the deputy leadership (sorry Harriet). For while Johnson dithers about whether to get into a mudfight with a certain brown-eyed pensioner, our perma tanned Northern Ireland secretary is the only leading figure who unambiguously wants the deputy leadership.

Johnson should be warned and remember that the present Foreign Secretary tried for both jobs in 1994: she got neither- so might he.
