Gordon Brown is rather hilariously saying that the Speaker will be making a statement about a meeting with all the party leaders. He's then gone on to effectively make the announcement of the changes to allowances. So much for the Speaker making the announcement.
UPDATE: The hacks are restless in this conference. Adam Boulton and John Snow went on the fact that Hazel Blears and other Cabinet ministers have clearly acted wrongly, but they have not resigned, and it looks like they will not be de-selected. One hack pointed out that if he got caught shoplifting and then said "oh I'll pay for it now" it wouldn't matter as he'd still be done for it. Good point.
