Audacity of Pope

Looks like Greg Pope will be getting some tender loving care from Nick Brown later today.  Labour’s Chief Whip and long-time Brown enforcer was overheard late last night on the train coming into King Cross.  Guido’s informant sent this from his iPhone:

Nick Brown is sitting behind me on the train to KingsX right now and although he thinks he’s being guarded on the mobile – I know what he is talking about. The essence is that the plot rumours are real and he is holding meetings tomorrow to discuss things. Greg Pope was mentioned and the feelings within the PLP and ‘worries’, two camps, theose who will ‘soldier on and those who want him out’…

Monday night* is usually when the PLP meets.  Nick Brown will be keen to crush the dissent that is being stirred up by Charles Clarke before it can get any momentum.  Guido suspects that Greg Pope won’t give a damn, or be cowed very easily, he is openly calling for Brown to go on his blogHe is standing down at the election…

*Haven’t confirmed it is business as usual today.
