The Weasel Strikes Again

Alan Johnson might be the greasiest of greasy political operators and it comes as a surprise to nobody that he has decided to take himself out of the running for leader of the Labour party. In what can only be described as "careful" language, he has set out his reasons for supporting Brown:

"there was a feeling throughout the party that Gordon Brown is a towering political figure" and "a great intellect"

Why is it a "feeling throughout the party"? Is it not the feeling of Alan Johnson? As always, New Labour statements are more about what they don't say than what they do.
