Deputy Leadership backers
The latest supporters listed on Harriet Harman's website are Yvette Cooper and Geoff Hoon.
That's significant as both are very close to Gordon.
It could be that he's given his supporters a free hand and there are personal friendships and loyalties at play here but maybe there is a line going out?
Or... will an alternative strategy of hedging of bets become evident, with some of the Chancellor's allies being embedded in each deputy leadership campaign so that they all owe him something?
