Douglas Alexander is campaign supremo

Much speculation in today's press that Douglas Alexander's appointment (by the new Labour leader, Gordon Brown) as Labour's election campaign co-ordinator means there's an early election in the offing. The ever-reliable Bill Jacobs, however, in today's Edinburgh Evening News, dispels such rumours.

There is also some crystal ball-gazing in the papers about Alexander's future under the Brown premiership. Some are touting him for Alistair Darling's job at the DTI, but my hunch is that he'll remain at the Department for Transport, although shorn of his Scotland Office duties. With his new goal of delivering a fourth Labour election victory, he'll have more than enough on his plate.
