Beckett and the leadership debate

Apparently democracy is all a bit of a distraction according to Margaret Beckett :

Ms Beckett told BBC One's The Politics Show she hoped Mr Brown would not face a heavyweight challenger when Mr Blair steps down.

"To some extent, I hope not actually because I hold the view that Gordon is the person who should be the next prime minister," she said.

"I think that the good thing would be if he is able to concentrate on what that will mean and what he needs to do to help to take this country forwards to even greater success."

Well that's alright then, Margaret thinks he should be PM and the rest of us should not be troubling him with trivialities such as debate and democracy.
