Will Brown Replace Blair?
Does this mean an end or beginning for the US/UK Alliance? Bottom line...likely the same old, same old. Goodbye Tony...thanks for the love.
Chancellor Gordon Brown is preparing to officially launch his bid to be the next Labour leader and prime minister.
Following Tony Blair's announcement that he will step down on 27 June, the process of selecting a successor begins - with Mr Brown overwhelming favourite.
The only other contenders, backbench Labour MPs Michael Meacher and John McDonnell have yet to say if they have enough backers to enter the race.
Mr Brown is expected to pledge to make Britain a "better and fairer" place.
