Gordon Brown one nomination short of a coronation

Though some unkind observers might say that he is also one sandwich short of a picnic.

Gordon Brown now has 307 nominations, John McDonnell still has 29, and would need all 16 of those yet to nominate to be in the race. One of those is Charles Clarke who did say he would back Gordon Brown, and there are also 3 in that number who will not nominate anybody.

For John McDonnell the game is up. He is dead in the water and will not get on the ballot paper. Mind you I have had no doubt that Gordon Brown would get a coronation for 6 months now!
