Blairites for Johnson

The blairites seem to be lining up behind Alan Johnson for deputy leader. According to Patrick Wintour and Will Woodward in the Guardian, the backing of John Prescott is a "significant boost to the education secretary". All the other candidates would no doubt kill to have a discredited buffoon backing them.

Meanwhile, the Independent and the Telegraph put different spins on Gordon Brown campaigning on education today. Both use the same previewed quotes. The Independent talks about Brown making the issue a "personal passion", while the Telegraph says Brown will make an explicit attack on Blair's record.
