If there’s one thing that unites this PLP it’s a determination to win the next election.
And those of us who have come to the conclusion, by an entirely objective and logical process, that you cannot lead Labour to victory, would be doing a disservice to our country and to our party by staying silent.
The results from last night have confirmed in my mind that the electorate aren’t yet sold on Cameron, but they have made their minds up about you, Gordon, and it’s not going to change. We can win the next election, but only if we have a new leader.
So answer me this, Gordon: Why do you think Cameron wants you to remain in post?
A good question. And it highlights the fact that Conservatives couldn't be more delighted with the fact that Brown remains in situ. He's swinging from the gibbet but there is no one courageous enough at the top of the Labour Party to pull the rope tight around his neck.
