So Blears has gone and Darling won't go to the FO. On the bright side, Sky News just found somebody captioned as 'Gordon Brown's Friend'. I wondered who it was.
Brown can't now do a reshuffle because he holds no cards, though I can think of one possible solution. There are 140 ministers - I know, absurd isn't it? - give Ed Balls 70 of these jobs and Yvette Cooper the rest. It might all get a bit stressy, but everyone says they are very clever with proper degrees and stuff.
Oh hang in Gordo is coming out... No he's not. He's curled in a foetal ball in the hallway... Very wise, I find it often works.
Ah he's here. Light blue tie. Smiling. Botox obviously. Gone.
Somebody called Martin Salter with a haircut only an MP could possibly have. Lackey.
A few smelly-looking types on the green benches....
Bolton says he's already shuffling because of the presence of putty-featured Nick Brown.
'Is a visit to Dignitas the only answer?' asks ChrisH commenting on my previous. Of course, that was where Brown was going.
Welsh man with Hitler moustache. Nothing there.
Geoff Hoon on some other channel arguing with Andrew Neil about his second home. So last week.
Brown in House not Zurich. Johnson looks very sulky.
Guido says Caroline Flint rumoured to be resigning. Truly the revolt of the women.
Oh here we go... Defiant.
Brown thinks people should take a step back... er. Unbelievable evasion.
What are Mewslim communities?
Live blogging over. It gets in the way of my stamping and screaming....
It was Cameron's moment to be magisterial and he failed.
