Labour teetering on the brink of apocalypse

June 20th, 2009 Posted in UK Politics by

Today’s ComRes poll puts Labour on just 22%, the Tories are on 39% and we’re on 18%. If Mandelson is loopy enough to back Brown right through an election campaign, expect the LibDems to come second in vote share. Brown will lose votes every time he opens his mouth and Nick could expect to make major headway as a “first election” third-party leader, especially given his easy TV manner.

It’s up to Mandelson now. The Cabinet and the PLP have both castrated themselves with a blunt and rusty knife.

I hope the Prince of Darkness has lost his marbles and drives his party (for it is now, unquestionably, his party) to Destination Oblivion, but I suspect he will still remove the PM a couple of months before polling day.

UPDATE:  Sunday Mail suggests Brown will quit pre-election

    I do hope he doesn’t. Not least because it’ll moonscape Labour for generations, but also because I need to see him comprehensively tossed out of office; so that HE knows the depth of his failure.
