Some cabinet ministers are not fully reconciled to the Brown era if a few lines of verse supposedly written by a cabinet minister that have been doing the rounds in recent days are anything to go by.

“At Downing Street upon the stair,


I met a man who wasn’t Blair, 

He wasn’t Blair again today, 

Oh how I wish he’d go away.”
