Please go Gordon

Daily Mail: Charles Clarke tells Labour it must ditch Gordon Brown or face election defeat

When Gordon eventually calls the election, how many Labour MPs will turn against him in a bid to save their own reputations? Probably enough to give that group sway should there not be an outright majority. Be careful who you vote for!

Despite the current double-digit Tory lead in the polls, Mr Clarke insisted that the general election is 'eminently winnable for Labour under a new leader'.

I don't think he really believes this; the truth is more likely to be found in the earlier statement:

'Mr Clarke warned that Labour is facing a 'smashing' defeat in the poll and could be out of power for more than a decade.'

Vote Brown, get Mandleson.

Don't believe it?
The last one was "Vote Blair, get Brown" no one believed that either and look where we are now.

Vote Nic Clegg, get Vince Cable - That doesn't sound too bad. As much uncertainty as anything else.

@4 is right. It's the closest anyone is going to get to a fresh start rather than the blue or red wing of the homeownerist party

@4, @5, I tend to agree. Vince Cable is the nearest thing to sensible across the whole lot of headline politicians.
