Let me just say...nothing

On hearing that Miliband is apparently going to become European Foreign Minister a colleague drew to my attention the comedy value of this quote from Brown last week.

The PM had just been confronted with the possibility of his Foreign Secretary jumping ship to the continent.

"Let me just say – I have been at the meeting," Brown said.

"That was not their decision – just let me tell you. Also, if there is a shortlist, I am sure David would be on it, because he has excellent qualifications. But he doesn't want to be on it. And indeed – there is no such list."

Covering all the bases there.
