James Purnell resigns - Gordon Brown next?

Just got back from a few days away and the political scene seems to be heading into meltdown.

According to the latest reports, James Purnell has quit the Cabinet and told Gordon Brown to stand down to save the Labour Party a “fighting chance of winning”.

Instant comments here from the Guardian, BBC News and the Times.

Ironically, I am currently reading the Alan Clark Diaries and I am just coming up to the section decribing the days leading to the end of Mrs Thatcher's Government.

Deja vu dosen't even begin to describe the similarities and if history is anything to go by, it is highly likely that there will be a new leader of the Labour Party sooner rather than later.
