It's official - Gordon Brown is the new British Labour PM

According to the Beeb, Gordon Brown has secured the backing of enough MPs to ensure he will not face a contest to become the next Labour leader and prime minister, and thus will enter No. 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister's official residence unopposed, without new elections being held when Tony Blair steps down on June 27th.

Oddly enough, the British themselves seem unsure of what the ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer will be like as PM. Brown has a rep as being rather saturnine, reserved and I guess we'll have to wait and see.
