8 comments on “Gordon Brown faces mutiny as whip calls for leadership contest – Times Online

  1. I look forward to the day that someone succeeds, but it is not just the leader that is the problem. Lets have a leadership campaign and then an election, should be the shortest premiership in history.

  2. As much as I want to say that I hope so, I think the possible alternative in the form of the Tories is also fairly hideous… None of them give even the slightest meaningful consideration to the idea of proper representation for England, either, which is also rather annoying.

    All the talk about democracy and local government becomes wearisome when you consider that England as a country is effectively disenfranchised.

  3. UK Voter: yes — I couldn’t agree more. Though I must admit I agree with Mike that the alternative is also rather unappealing.

    Mike: I think you’ve definitely got to the heart of the problem there, mate. Maybe when more of us start to cotton on to the fact that this is a real problem and start to shout about it a bit more it might get addressed — though I doubt it, somehow. I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that it’s almost as if it’s not considered politically correct to even bring up the subject.

  4. Well, it isn’t. All kinds of special pleading, double standards are brought out to address the West Lothian Question, the only answer to which is an English Parliament.
