According to a poll commissioned by BBC 2’s Daily Politics Show and released this afternoon, half of all voters think Labour would do better if Gordon Brown stepped down as leader.
However, before we all get carried away by the excitement, a staggering 70 percent could not think of any of his colleagues who would be better in the job!
Yes, that does include members of the Cabinet who declare support for GB in public and scheme away in private.
Perhaps, it might help explain the sudden outbreak of cold feet amongst Brown’s underlings during Wednesday’s misjudged ‘coup’ attempt.
What a state the country is now in!
