Brown Nearly Ousted in UK

"A series of Cabinet ministers were sent out to back Mr Brown, but David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary and a potential successor, left a cloud over the Prime Minister by taking seven hours to issue a less than effusive statement saying only that he “supported the re-election campaign for a Labour government”.

Alistair Darling, the Chancellor, also took hours to back Mr Brown and Bob Ainsworth, the Defence Secretary, appeared to offer only token support."

Labor sticks by their leader, barely. U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown is on his way out.
