BBC Have your say - Is Gordon Brown losing his authority?

Is Gordon Brown losing his authority?

Senior figures in the Labour Party have urged Gordon Brown to assert his authority ahead of Thursday’s European and English local elections. Should the prime minister take more control of the party?

The party’s former deputy leader, Roy Hattersley, said the prime minister needed to take the party “by the scruff of the neck†and regain control.

Former minister Peter Kilfoyle also urged Mr Brown to act decisively.

Their comments come after sources close to Jacqui Smith said she would stand down as home secretary in a reshuffle.

Has the public’s trust in Parliament been lost? Can there be unity in the party? Will a reshuffle bring the party back together? How can the prime minister regain your trust?

Is it usual for the BBC to close the comments section so soon on an article published at 8.36 this morning? 131 comments and not even one published, surely they can't have all broken the Have your say rules?

Different polls Jason.

Obviously the BBC decided to close the first poll, and open the second. The two polls are very similar. I guess it's because Hazel Blears resigned and the BBC decided to re-word the poll.
