Nick Robinson has just reported on the BBC that Brown and Reid met last night. Robinson says that he heard that Brown offered Reid the job of Home Secretary but a Brown aide denies that and says they just talked about Celtic football club. I’m sure Brown—fighting for his political life—has nothing better to do than to invite an old enemy over to talk about Celtic. I aslo have a bridge to sell you.
PS I should also say there are persistent rumours that there are two more resignations to come tonight.
Update: Robinson is stressing that Reid's office is saying he is not returning to government.
