they defo cannot change Brown for a new leader without an election, there would be massive resistance to that from Opp and Cleggville

Ok somethings definitely up folks, Minister has not denied it.

Labourhome and other places appears rife with rumour that a Cabinet Minister will rstand as a stalking horse candidate against Brown if he loses the expenses vote tonight and would also be prepared to trigger a Motion of No- Confidence, whichif called, several labour MPs would be prepared to vote against the government. Here’s the link - make what you will of it - whether it’s true or not isn’t really the point but it shows the deep feeling of disquiet with Brown in Labour ranks.

I'm amazed Broon doesnt take the hint, not even your labour supporters want you. They are egging on a coup on your own website.

interesting

"taxi to Kings Cross for Mr Brown!"

I reckon about 40,000. A slight acceleration in the evening but not as optimistic as you.

I reckon an undersupply of 'sack gordon' petitions will mean it will hit a permanently high stable plateau bringing prosperity to millions.

I think there might be a moderation limit, maximising the amount that can be added per "refresh". It's the sort of trick they'd pull, knowing that media attention span is limited, and that even millions being added when the public has lost interest will make no odds.

Has everyone that's signed recently checked to see if they are on the list of signatories?

The sheeple will be pretty focused soon on needing someone to blame. Gordo and NewLiebor are the perfect scapegoat. this next election will be well attended I think ;)

still looks a year away I think - GB has won the first MPs expenses vote

edit: sorry that's b*llocks:

BBC website: "The government has won the first two votes on the surviving parts of Gordon Brown's proposed expenses reforms. "

Guardian: "Embarrassing defeat for PM as House unanimously votes to wait for report from Commons watchdog "

weird 2 opposite takes...

But the most contentious issue - of the £24,000-a-year second homes allowance available to all non-London MPs - was kicked into the long grass again.

Faced with the prospect of a second Commons defeat in 24 hours, ministers abandoned attempts to get MPs to agree the broad principles of a new system at the 11th hour.

Commons Leader Harriet Harman announced this afternoon that the Government was accepting calls for any move on second homes to be deferred until after an independent inquiry.

C4 News just showed an interview with Brown where the interviewer repeatedly questioned his political authority following the climb down on the 2nd home allowance - very good and tenacious bit of interviewing - worth watching if anyone can see the later version. Brown was, of course, repeatedly giving the same twisted version in the hope that it would become true.

It just gets worse for Gordon

By William Green on Apr 29, 09 04:31 PM

The wheels seriously seem to be coming off the once-mighty Gordon Brown juggernaut. Should we feel sorry for him?

First his own backbenchers stick two fingers over a cack-handed bid to bounce them into accepting changes to allowances.

Rumblings over that ****-up - as admitted by one minister privately - are ongoing, as you will see in a story that I have done for The Journal tomorrow ahead of a key vote in the Commons.

And now an online petition calling on him to resign has become the most popular on the Downing Street website with more than 28,400 people signing up

A rival petition declaring "every confidence" in the Government and to wait to hold an election until the "last possible moment" has been signed by just six people - including a certain T AntrumsRUs.

In a further blow, Mr Brown has now lost a vote on plans to allow Ghurkas to come to Britain - which Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg tore into in a highly effective speech in Prime Minister's Questions.

Of which at least 4 are bogus.

It will be interesting to see how many votes it gets after 7 days, compared with the 30,000 'resign' votes in the same period.

That's what I'm saying - you were far closer than any chancellor has ever been with anything (that probably includes when 10K was a lot of money)

To be honest that sounds like a very bad job at the moment.

Can't I be a 'minister for cultural awareness' and keep the expenses?

I'd like to include this link from the Torygraph just because the headline sounds like one from The Daily Mash.

Gordon Brown has lost it, say ministers:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics...-ministers.html

The Telegraph article mentions the petition too.

A journo on This Week also said tonight that Brown and the people surrounding him had lost authority in the Labour party.

I am sure it is the end game for Brown. How long can he continue?

If labour oust him, there would surely have to be an election... but would the flu epidemic obstruct that?

H1N1 Flu is about to go political, I guess.

Fingers crossed the pace of signing continues today. It does feel like the end game now, but not sure what Brown will do.
