    Can I just ask what the point is to all the amusing wind about an Election ?

    Cameron can stamp his feet all he wants but it’s not his decision.
    Major staggered on until the bitter end. So will Brown.

    Fact is the mechanics for a challenge in the Labour Party mean he is absolutely safe and there can’t be a competition yet.

    The only other possible way he could be persuaded to go would be a massive Cabinet revolt and in case you haven’t noticed Mandy has spun the imminent doom of some members of the Cabinet to great effect and they all fear for their jobs as few indeed could not be easily swept onto the backbenches because of their disgusting piggery.

    So a reshuffle will cement Browns power and the reforms package will keep the backbenches happy as it’s easy enough to tell them to wait and see how things go once the Expenses Scandal and the Euros are out of the way and they can check public opinion in September when the Speaker has his By-Election.

    So by that time Brown has his reforms package starting to move through the commons and even if he is still doing as badly as now it will be too late for a challenger by then as who wants to be leader with the polls in the shitter and only a scant few months to go ?

    All of which still ignores the vital point of if not Brown then who ?
    Because there is no one candidate who could satisfy all of Labour.
    And that being the case there would have to be a messy contest which would take months and that just isn’t going to happen just before an Election. Labour know this. You can pretend they are stupid or desperate enough to do it if you wish but the appettite is simply not there. They are all in the shit so they will happily be led even by the likes of Brown.

    Don’t get me wrong I’d love an Election tomorrow but the facts on the ground are that it’s not going to happen. Brown has hatched this whole reshuffle/reform strategy with Mandy (who should have been securing Vauxhall jobs the twat) so why would he quit before the reforms and reshuffle ?

    Cameron can keep calling for an Election from now until next year because that’s when it’s going to happen and there’s nothing he can do about it.

    He cried day after day after day for a referendum on the Lisbon treaty too.
    Guess what ? Didn’t happen. Won’t happen under him either.

    Cameron fears what Brown’s minions have been hatching all this time as a constitutional reforms package and so he should. Because the only thing that unites Labour right now is any sort of plan to totally Fuuck the Conservatives at the next Election.

    So Proportional Representation, a LibLab pact, Party Funding, fixed terms, Bill of rights, Totally Elected House of Lords, massive extensions to freedom of Information.. all this and more will be considered and some of it will indeed be implemented. Some won’t of course as he only has so much time. The Relaunch and reshuffle will be pretty quick after the Euros and Locals though.

        A fair point and if NuLabour comes fourth and their national polling plummets right under 20% then panic among backbenchers might cause chaos.

        But I still can’t see it shifting Brown as he has proved that bloody minded stubborness that often flies in the face of common sense & reality is one of his strongest traits.

          I think you are right, Brown will not resign and will remain after the next election. Civil war within the Labour party will result and it will break into at least two factions.

          What we are watching is the beginning of the final break up of the Labour party, which should have happened pre Blair.

          A Labour Civil war is not inevitable but it is possible.
          Much will depend on how bad the results are and how the Newscycle turns.

          Because another thing people seem to be forgetting is that a massive UKIP vote will have repercussions beyond showing how little support Brown has.

          UKIP will be front and centre of Politics for a while because of this and as a result Cameron will have to deal with his Eurosceptics again as I have little doubt they will feel that “the future belongs to us” after UKIP’s big vote.

          Will Cameron budge and change the European Policy that has held the Party together this long ? I can’t see it myself and I think he has enough support to quash any rebellious grumblings. I could be wrong though. But grumblings about Europe there will be and no doubt Tebbit for one is spoiling for a fight. Again this hardly means a full scale Tory Civil War over Europe is inevitable but it has happened before.

      “Proportional Representation, a LibLab pact, Party Funding, fixed terms, Bill of rights, Totally Elected House of Lords…”

      Not a chance.

      a) Any change to the voting system can only be undertaken by a new Parliament with some credibility, and will anyway be held up in the Lords for years.

      b) LibLab pact already shot down in flames – “Vince Cable: ” Why would I want to be Chancellor in the dying days of a Labour Government?” or words to that effect. Complete non-starter.

      c) Party funding – Yeah right, Joe Public is really eager to give even more of his hard-earned to politicians, especially right now. NOT.

      Bill of rights, elected House of Lords, etc – dream on….

      None of this stuff will happen and Brown knows it. It’s just a stream of bullshit bubbling out of a political corpse.

        The Lords can be simply further stuffed with Labour yes-man just as Mandelson was shipped in with zero notice. The Lords is no bar to whatevere scheme enters Brown’s deseased skull.

        I reckon we’ll see PR before the next election. The only problem for Brown then is that suddenly being Prime Minister is a prize worth having even in the death of this government. Because sure as shit stinks Labour will come second in the next election any way and so will be able to cosy up to theLibDems and offer them a string of pretendy cabinet posts as long as Labour gets to be the Prime Minister.

        What odds Brown PM in 2011. Even with an election.

        Still worth a punt I’d say.

        It’s all about personal power and photo ops for Brown. Ever decision he makes in aimed not at the history books for the progress of the UK but his own autobiography.

        Picure of me with Obama ‘I said to Obama when we met on Omaha beach ….’

        Picture of me with Queen ‘I told the queen when she sat raptthrough our weekly metings…’

        Picture of me with Pope ‘I told the Pope on the occassion….’

        etc etc.

        It’s all about Brown using the status the position of PM affords him to gad about the world acting like the International statesman he truly imagines himself to be in his fucked-up head.

        It’s a shame for the other 60m of us but hat is the limit of his ambition. The destruction of the UK economy was just the necessary short-term boom he had to engineer to get there.

      That is a consigned-to- history scenario. Brown cannot do any of this during this term, so at best manifesto pledges, which the whole electorate will not believe in. The trust has been completely broken: will only be repaired via a GE. So with Brown still at the helm, a couple more political disasters, they just kep lining up-DDay anniversary, Post Office reform, the public will not get any sense of retribution for the serial troughing untill they get a vote, and I think they will exercise it to Nulabs total destruction.

      And as for Mandy well he never backs a loser and if he was so supportive of Brown do you really thinkk at this moment of time he would be alienating the public, unions and dismayed Labour backbenchers by pushing on with the part-privatisation of the Roayal Mail.

        Hardly all night I had a spare 20mins this morning and none of it is that far fetched it’s simply what I think Brown and Mandy will try because some of it has been trailed for a while now like the reshuffe, the reforms and now what they might include.

        Cameron is doing a very good impression of a man who desperately wants an Election. Is it because he doesn’t want Brown to have year to enact any reforms he isn’t keen on ? Not entirely but it’s certainly crossed his mind by now.

        Mandy backed Blair he doesn’t always back the winnner as he is backing Brown and a Brown victory is still hugely unlikely. Mandy plays the long game and his “loyalty” is to those who employ him. He now has almost complete carte blanche and is back in from the cold. A sleeper for Blair why exactly ? What profit is their in revenge when he can still be a mover and shaker and Blair is yesterday’s man.

        P.O. reforms are Mandy’s baby and a measure of his power that they are still going to try and shove them through. Because if the Conservatives support them the backbenches will be pissing in the wind. Not the first time that has happened.

        Lord Mandelson is intelligent enough to have realised that his future life and career will be more favourable if he is detached from the train crash that is the Brown premiership.

        Mandelson’s loyalties are to himself and he has the security of being an unelected peer which sets him completely apart from the rest of the Cabinet.
        He could easily be the one to lead a rebellion because he has the most security of employment. He has a future in the House of Lords and could easily return to the EU. In addition, he could well have ambitions to reform the Labour Party, become its new Leader and go down in the history books as its saviour.

        Mandelson’s interests and Brown’s interests are not the same and they never were. It is just a question of who gets the knife out first.

      Wholly, exclusively and necessarily says:

      Absolutely right.

      We have the most dangerous government in recent history; unafraid of electoral wipeout, since it’s going to happen anyway and desperate to salvage something reputationally out of the whole New Labour project.

      Watch for one-clause legislation to reform the Lords, introduce a constitution, abolish selective education, changes to the monarchy, disestablishment of the church – anything to attract the attention of the core Left and give them something to nurse to themselves as they enter a long dark night of the soul – well at best two or three terms well away from power. Sitting and outgoing Labour MPs have no reason to vote against any of this; since they can’t do anything about the wipeout to come, they may well revert to the politics of principle, assuming they can remember what their principles were.

      The hallmark will be similar to that of the Brown attempt to reform the expenses system just before the telegraph went public; instant, eye-catching rushed solutions pushed through, unthought out and without much regard for the long term consequences, since they won’t be around to have to pick up the pieces. A bit like their handling of the economy, come to think of it.

That’ll convince the rats in his govt that voters no longer listen to Brown & they must take action to get rid of him, otherwise they’ll all lose their jobs when a GE finally comes round – as compared to most of them losing their jobs if they’ve actually got a leader who’s unlikely to be detained under the Mental Health Act.

      For those of you who can’t stomach voting for the Party that dare not speak its name – please get out & vote for someone, anyone apart from Labour so that the percentage of voters is very high – percentage voting for Gordon very low.

    He also continued to bill taxpayers for £1,200 worth of food while he was designating his grace-and-favour apartment in Downing Street as his second home.

    …Just weeks after moving in, he spent £4,995 on furniture, magnolia carpets and a television and put through all the bills on his second home allowance. This included a two-seat sofa and a chaise longue from Ikea, costing £765, as well as kitchenware, bed linen, vases, tea towels, an oven mitt and a 75p carrier bag.

It would be a brave and risky strategy for the Tories, but it would be proof that they were putting country before Party; and it would also be a way for the disgraced MPs to salvage some scrap of personal honour.

      Take a look at what happened in march ’77, there are parallels with the current situation, when “Oily” Jim Callaghan faced a vote of no confidence, against the background of a resurgent Conservative party led by Margaret Thatcher. The inevitable Conservative landslide was held off for two years (the pact being dissolved in 1978) whilst the Lib-Lab pact and the unions destroyed what was left of the economy.

    It would be quite funny to watch the man leave these shores as PM(Unelected) and return as an ordinary citizen (Booted Out!). Or better still he might choose to stay away permanently – could apply to Sarkozy for political asylum, if they were foolish enough to want him!

    Brown has a simple move which would at one instant restore his position.

    Announce it was a mistake to renage upon the promise of a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty and arrange for a referendum to take place immediately, scuppering the hopes of the EU Obergauleiters attempts to close off the issue by forcing the Irish to change their wishes and elect to continue under the regime that has done so much to destroy their economy and well being!

    That move would leave all the other parties floundering, and be hugely popular with the UK electorate – the streets might even ring to chorus’s of “For He’s a jolly good fellow!”

    The Balls in the cartoon is far better looking than the real life Balls. It flatters the ugly scrote!

    If Herr Testes gets the key to No11, as part of Uncle Joe’s attempts to secure his succession, what happens to la Cooper? Surely you couldn’t have a pair of balls in the same department?
