Trouble at mill for Gordon Brown

However he will do so against the background in which for the first time since he faced Tony Blair, a genuine rival has emerged.
Gordon Brown spent the good part of decade hounding Tony Blair for the Premiership and destabilizing his government as a consequence.  So now the boot is finally on somebody else's foot - the Blairite David Miliband. 
'Poetic justice' some may say. 
Brown is now so obviously the underdog that I'm starting to think better of him.  Funny how that is.
