Darling, you are unassailable

"My Chancellor is unassailable", declared Margaret Thatcher of Nigel Lawson in October 1989. Lawson resigned seven days later.

But that is surely an accurate description of Chancellor Darling.

In a short Guardian Comment is Free piece on that subject today, I also suggest that Andrew Rawnsley's new book will cause less turbulence inside the government and Labour party than they would have done a year ago "in large part it is because the long battle of the New Labour factions is finally, thankfully, over ... though many doubted whether there were ever many more than a dozen hyper-partisans on either side".
