Return to Southfork
Gordon Brown returns to the fray tomorrow after a three-week break with a plan designed to show that he is the politician best placed to lead Britain through the downturn, and that he is ready to take on his critics.
But Mr Brown has been planning his relaunch without knowing whether the plotters seeking to remove him from office will strike again over the next few weeks.
