Brown crisis bringing policy changes
The Brown leadership crisis may not produce a change of leader, but it is already producing changes in policy.
David Dimbleby has just asked Labour's Chief Whip Nick Brown about slowing down the part-privatisation of the Royal Mail.
Mr Brown said that he wanted "to find a way through" the problem which would carry "the support of the majority of the parliamentary party".
Translated, that means "it's on the back burner".
The public excuse? It's a tricky time in the markets.
The real reason? Brown's survival.
