It will only be "published" once 50 MPs have signed it.The email was revealed on the day that Communities Secretary Hazel Blears said she was resigning from the Cabinet.Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig said: "This is circulating amongst Labour MPs and it shows that the talk of a plot is real."My understanding is that the plan is to have this campaign ready to go after the results of the local council elections on Friday or possibly on Monday after the results of the European elections."It is all being done anonymously at the moment."At some stage, people will have to come out of the wood and identify themselves otherwise no one will take it seriously."

    who would they replace him with?

    That may have been the conventional wisdom a few months ago, but not quite so now. The VAT reduction was a total shambles. He was slow to act on Northern Rock as well.

    The worst thing is that his position has become untenable.

    In my opinion, the best man for the job is Vince Cable.

    I think he's hot and should stay

What will happen, we will vote for change, get a new party, new PM, a Tory majority will be a very nasty reality given time.We then lynch that leader, and the whole sorry cycle starts again :-(



    True.

    Could vote Lib Dem.

    More straying from the mainstream due to the current distrust will see seats being gained by the likes of UKIP and the BNP - if this happens, then we have discussions . . . .

    I'll be voting snp thankfully up here we have another alternative.

    All a bunch of numptys.

    I am not a G Brown fan however he alone isnt responsible for our mess, its the entire Labour Government. Tony Blair made the mess and left leaving someone else to take the flack.
    Regardless who steps in, its too late in my eyes. Id prefer an election brought forward so we, the public have the decision.

    This expenses thing been going on for years, its only now because FOI it can be made public that we are aware to what extent. They may not be breaking any rules however morally they shouldnt be milking it like they do.

    I big cheer the Welsh Assembly AM INDEPENDENT who was the ONLY one who had NOT claimed any expenses!! good for her!!

    i think this mess goes back a little further than the current labour government

    hardly think the country was in a healthy state when they took over in the first place


    i think an audit of the last 10/15 years is in order for all mp's......or at least the last 5

    Indeed and it slowly got worse until we as a country hit rock bottom which sadly i feel we are heading.

    lol Step down !!

    Whos going to do a better job in the near future than Gordon ?
