A new job for Brown?

Mike Smithson has stuck his neck out and has argued that Broon may yet fail to secure the leadership of the Labour Party as and when Blair resigns / is 'assassinated' etc. Now this would give me at least as much pleasure as left leaners derived from the decapitation of Grocer Heath and his resultant 30 year sulk. So, if Broon stumbles, would he take on the Heath option and stay on in Parliament, or might he chance his hand at Scottish domestic politics?

However, there may well be more amusing options: Governor of South Georgia, Ambassador to Iraq etc. Anyone care to make a suggestion or two?

Clearly inspired by this, New Woman has asked Mrs Broon the same question, and she reckons a football manager. I could see Brown making Alec Ferguson look like Emlyn Hughes.... Anyway, Clooney to play Brown is clearly absurd. I suggest Dan Hedaya (who normally looks even angrier):

I don't know anything about Scottish domestic politics so I can't guess what, if anything, would appeal to Gordo in that regard. However, if he is by-passed I can't imagine an outcome which doesn't involve truly operatic levels of sulking.

My own guess is that he will get the top job but won't last long. I'm not sure what would be next but I think we can rule out Minister for Fun as the consolation prize.

I imagine he might fancy being a big fish in a rather small pond, and perhaps go for the First Ministership (if he were to get a seat etc etc).

If not, maybe he could follow Galloway's example and appear on Big Brother?

John Reid has an amazing chance to stake his claim to the Labour Party Leadership if he can manage to turn around his new department. And he will have all the votes of the anti-brown lobby (of which there will probably be a fair few.)

Brown has repeatedly missed his chance to challenge Blair, and such a lack of courage would not make him an ideal PM.
