The Nixon Regime - the verdict of The Guardian

"The prime minister demands loyalty, but that has become too much to ask of a party, and a country, that was never given the chance to vote for him. Had there been a contest for the leadership in 2007 - and had Mr Brown called a general election - he would probably have won. He decided not to do these things. And he has largely failed since.

"All must agree that the die is cast and a hard judgment made. Otherwise progressive politics will be dragged down at a general election in May 2010 that could lead to a much bigger defeat than Labour suffered in 1979. ...

"Labour has a year left before an election; its current leader would waste it. It is time to cut him loose."

Here! here!

Must confess i've been surprised by events over the last coupla days. Blears and Purnell - 2 utter snakes by my reckoning - seem to have preciptated the beginning of the end of GB.

Who do you think will be the next leader of the Labour Party, Alan? And who would you like it to be?

My answers: David Milliband and Dennis Canavan.
