Betting Minister idenitified

The Minister who stands to gain a small fortune if Gordon Brown loses the general election has been identified as Lord West, Security Minister and former Admiral. The Telegraph has it here. So, he didn't sign Brown's nomination papers and hasn't been talking him up to the rest of us. However, he would have made the bet shortly after being appointed and so that raises an intriguing possibility. Did he go straight from his meeting with Brown to the bookies? I mean, as an ex-Admiral one of his key jobs would have been to identify talent for leadership when considering promotions and appointments. One chat with Brown was probably enough to spot a money-making opportunity on that score.
