What do the Cabinet think of each other?
Position taken by Cabinet Ministers (those who are MPs) so far in the Deputy Leadership election:
Blair, Prescott, Brown - not likely to nominate
Blears, Johnson, Benn, Hain - candidates
Reid, Jowell, Armstrong, Kelly, Hutton - backing Blears
Darling (according to Guardian), Hewitt, Alexander (according to Guardian) - backing Harman
Timms - backing Benn
Which means the ones still to declare are Straw, Beckett, Miliband, Browne, Smith.
Straw's nomination will be interesting as he is Brown's campaign manager.
Are any of Hain's closest colleagues going to back him?
