The flavour of the moment for followers of politics is “How long will Brown last?”, “Will someone stand against Brown?” 

Fascinating no doubt.  But it all rather forgets that just a short while ago the Parliamentary Labour Party almost to a man/woman put their names to Brown’s nomination papers. 

It seems to me that they are all joined together at the hip.  If Brown is so awful what does it say about the judgement of Labour MPs 12 months ago?
