Brown on the brink

| 08/06/2009

(The Independent): Gordon Brown was hit by another ministerial backlash today as he battled to stay in No 10. Jane Kennedy said she was not re-appointed as an environment minister because she refused to give a pledge of loyalty to Mr Brown. She said she told him in a "frank and honest" phone call this morning that "I could not offer him the support he was asking for". And she hit out at "smears" of colleagues by people associated with No 10 and said if Mr Brown stayed on to the bitter end, it would be "to the bitter end of the Labour Party". Mr Brown’s spokesman flatly denied he had asked her, or any other minister, for a loyalty pledge as another day of Whitehall drama unfolded.
