Gordon Brown, Chancellor of the Exchequer, has been nominated as successor of Mr Blair.

Mr Blair and his chancellor are known to have redefined labour’s philosophy to make it friendlier to market economy and globalisation without losing its socialistic underpinning.

3) If not, then what would be the mode of action of the British MP`s
