It hasn't been a good few hours. Yes Purnell, Hoon, and Beckett are all out of a job. Yes Sir Alan Sugar has been brought in, but that said things are still bad. Caroline Flint has resigned in a huff, Brown could not command today's Press Conference, capped with his arrogant statement "I'm not arrogant!" Then you have Barry Shearman, Lord Soley, and Paul Flynn making persuasive arguments about Brown standing down. On top of that Labour suffered far more over the expenses issue at the local elections than the Tories or Lib Dems did! With bad results for the Euros predicted for Sunday, I cannot see how Brown can continue.
There is the weekend to go. I hope, I really hope, that the PM reflects on his position then and lets us know on Monday, because to continue means probable civil war for Labour and the consequences of that are not worth considering without a shudder!
