Nicola only wants the press to warm to the idea of the Fourth Sector initiative, likening it to a cake, but when she claims the prime minister, absent at a conference in Spain, is the right man "for the moment" it sparks off whispers that she may be putting herself forward as party leader.

Glenn considers putting himself forward as a possible minister, promising Ollie a seat in his cabinet. Written by don @ minifie-1
