Gordon Brown was already the least popular potential next Labour leader even before the failed Watson coup attempt. His approval rating was minus 20%. It is now minus 35% and falling faster by the day. Even Blair has a higher approval rating. The field is wide open. Jack Straw’s in with a chance I would say. But no one wants Gordon Brown, except those he’s promised favours to.
Within that list should be the Liberal Democrats. According to the Daily Mirror on Friday, he’s playing the same old games as Blair did with offering Proportional Representation. Blair was lying to Ashdown. I doubt anyone will be listening to Labour promises on that one any more.
