Labour MPs Best Chances still lie with Keeping Gordon as PM
The Euro results will be a further body blow and Labour MPs meet tomorrow to discuss the crisis. Many think they will turn on Brown and turf him out, good riddance. They may well do so but I tend to agree with Mandy that this would be unwise. An election process will probably not play well with voters and it will be very hard to resist calls for an early election.
If that comes, Labour will be out for a generation. If they are wise Labour MPs will stick with Gordon- the devil they know- as that way at least they will survive until may 2010. But disillusion with Brown may cloud their judgemment and, as turkeys they may vote for Christmas.
He's rather better placed and far more political astute than I am!
Him staying only helps the Tories, and weakens sterling, so in effect the only person to benefit from him staying is me.
While Brown is a shocking leader the failure by his opponents to show they can organise themselves probably means replacing Brown will result in something even worse.A true choice between a rock and a hard place....
