Is this the endorsement that Brown was looking for?  Sky and the BBC report that the Business Secretary is putting out the message that the PM has the support of his Cabinet colleagues.

Meanwhile, the good folk at Comment Central are running a Cabinet Watch, tracking which members of the Cabinet have come out in support of Brown.  Only three, so far - although they haven't added Mandelson yet (or Ed Balls, who is currently on Sky talking about "getting on with the job").  All eyes on Darling, Johnson, Harman and Miliband now.
