Alan Milburn won’t be seeking re-election at the next election.
He wants to pursue other stuff, spend more time with his family etc etc.
But might there be a last parting shot?
Now wholly unshackled from any obligations to back Brown’s dying government, might he even go as far as endorsing another party in 2010?
If Brown clings on until the electorate finally deliver their damning verdict, don’t bet against it.
