But what does this mean for today’s politics?

Will it have interest beyond political anoraks?

Just looking at tomorrow Telegraph splash and reading the some of the documents from Brown camp that have been leaked I’m trying to work out what relevance this will all have for today.

This was all six years ago – some of the players are still there others are gone. Ed Miliband and Balls, his shadow chancellor were all closely involved but do the public really give a damn?

I suppose that it does put the arguments within the coalition into some sort of context. Nothing that is going on now is anything on the scale of what the paper is reporting.

It’s also a reminder that these splits within Labour are still there and have the potential to flair up.

It’s interesting – but not that interesting.
