This morning Ben Brogan has news that the "Blairite versus Brownite" battle is still lingering on. It would appear that the former Prime Minister's supporters are briefing that Brown has until the May elections to sort out the hole Labour has found itself in. If those elections go bad then there could be a leadership push.
This doesn't seem all that strange to me, it stands to reason that Labour will see how Brown performs at the ballot box before they take the knives out totally. The key to remember is all those MPs that have marginal seats or can see their job going down the swanny with a small swing to another party.
As a "former Minister" (Milburn, Clarke, Byers you choose) said to Ben Brogan, "[t]hose who were elected in 1997, 2001 and 2005 have never known Opposition and find the prospect terrifying." I bet they do, because if they're "young" (I'm thinking Ed Balls) they will know that the prospect is to be reaching a zenith in the Labour Party when you're not in power.
