    And another one bites the dust.

    Crumbs, it seems Gordon is throwing them overboard faster than he can bail out water from the sinking ship "Nu-Labour"…

    BBC…

    Jumping from a sinking ship, all for personal gain so they get their £64000 pay-off now while they still can before the rules are changed and they lose the next general election anyway :rolleyes:

    The "right thing" would be to resign as an MP with immediate effect as well. Unfortunately we're going to have to wait for the people of Salford to eject her and at that point she'll be eligible for even more money she doesn't deserve.

    Indeed it was.
    Cameron and Clegg tried their best to undermine Gordon Brown as PM, and show he should be leaving with so many of his colleagues.
    They failed; he stood well his ground. Honestly, those who would oust him, what/who would be the proposed replacement?

    He's doing a fine job.

    Earlier on the Radio, the BBCs John Pienaar said that there is a letter concerning The Great Leader™ being passed around backbench Labour MPs.

    The end, it would appear, is nigh.
