Was the Prime Minister ever really going to resign? The very Cabinet
Ministers who are reported to have been rushing to reassure him he must stay in the job are now saying there was never any prospect of him leaving. So why did they feel the need to beg him to stay? Just before a Cabinet reshuffle too. What possible reason could they all have to rally round the PM, whether he needed them or not?
We talk to one of the Cabinet Ministers who admits asking Tony to stay - but also denies he was ever going to leave.
