Update: Interesting take by our pol editor on why things have got a lot better for Brown.
Stephen Foley thinks it looks very stupid to ditch Brown. He’ll be on the show.
This story is unrelenting. You take your eyes of it for an hour, as I did last night for a game of squash, you turn the radio on and there’s another huge development.
I went to bed hearing that Gordon Brown was on the ropes, now he’s pulled off a swift reshuffle (bringing a potential successor nice and close as Health Secretary) and pundits says he’s now got a better of chance of fighting on. Who knows, to be honest?
But there’s no doubt his leadership is in serious peril, and some of you on the outside looking in are wondering at the wisdom of risking losing a leader that you believe is of high calibre.
Do you think Britons should wake up to the qualities of their PM? Or do you think their disillusionment (the local and European elections are certain to bring bad news for Labour) is completely understandable?
Spanish PM José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero makes the case for Brown in this article.
