Hazel Blears: A nation holds its breath

An overexcited BBC reports:
Labour chairman Hazel Blears will announce "soon" whether she intends to stand for the party's deputy leadership, the BBC has learned.
I love that "the BBC has learned" to make it sound like an exclusive.

What did the BBC imagine Blears would do? Wait until after the contest? Forget to make an announcement at all?

Didn't she announce that she was running for deputy before Christmas when she just happened to be 'captured' by the local BBC film crew picketing for 'no HNS cuts on my turf, guv'.

Perhaps she takes the 'John Major style soapbox' with her everywhere, no perhaps the local beep have learnt from experience
