Keeping the seat warm

Is Eleanor Burnham considering defecting to Labour so as to assume the leadership of their party? I only ask because of a throwaway line in yesterday's First Minister's questions in which she indicated that Gordon Brown had been keeping the seat warm for her:

Eleanor Burnham: I had the privilege and the pleasure of being one of the first to ride on the Virgin biofuel train from Euston to Llandudno last week; I believe that I was sitting in Gordon Brown’s seat, after he vacated it in Crewe. It was a pleasure and a privilege. [Laughter.]

Whether, it really is a 'pleasure and a privilege' to occupy the same seat as the Prime Minister-elect is a matter for debate but I suppose it beats being photographed outside the door of No. 10 Downing Street.
Looks like she'd better warm up a couple of other seats in preparation as it's amazing what you'll discover on the BBC pages these days:

The 'Master' and the 'Apprentice' - a race for First Minister

'The Apprentice' final that is showing this week is hotting up and the two contestants have battled it out while living together in their luxury pad in Cardiff Bay.
