Gordon Will be The Next Leader

It has been confirmed that Gordon Brown will be the next Labour Party leader and therefore our new Prime minister. Mr. Brown received backing from a huge majority of Labour MP’s acquiring 88% of the votes. Poor MP John McDonnell only received 29 nominations; not even enough to participate in a democratic election.

Is anybody really surprised? I sense not. I think it’s a shame that they didn’t give Mr. McDonnell a chance, I thought he was quite a nice guy! Anyway, Gordon Brown is expected to take over Tony Blair’s role on Wednesday 27th June.

Deputy leadership contenders will now compete to take the deputy role from John Prescott and to work alongside Mr. Brown. Alan Johnson received the most nominations out of the six and Hilary Benn just scraped through with 47 votes (45 is the minimum).
