Former postie Alan Johnson today wins The Sun’s backing to be Labour’s next deputy leader — to stop Peter Hain’s bid for the job. Education Secretary Mr Johnson is front-runner to become Gordon Brown’s No 2.Will it be the Sun that won it for Johnson?
Rival Mr Hain lurched further to the left last night when he was supported by militant train drivers. Aslef endorsed the Ulster Secretary after more pandering to the trade unions and US-hating lefties. Their move confirms Mr Hain as the champion of Labour’s dinosaurs.
