Jack Straw, the head of Gordon Brown’s campaign for the Labour leadership,
has hinted that he may be interested in serving as chancellor under a
Gordon Brown premiership.
Speaking to the BBC ,
Straw refuted comments that serving as chancellor under prime minister who had
previously held the position would be ‘the worst job in the world’.
‘People have said that about home secretary, foreign secretary, leader of the
House, but anyway, I’m very happy doing what I’m doing,’ Straw said.
Aides to Brown and Straw said no jobs had been promised to Straw in return
for running Brown’s campaign. Speculation has mounted, however, that Straw is a
leading candidate for
11 , alongside economic secretary Ed Balls and trade and industry
secretary Alistair Darling.
