Siobhain McDonagh, Labour MP for Mitcham and Morden, was sacked as a Labour whip after calling for a leadership contest.

Joan Ryan, Labour MP for Enfield North, was sacked as Gordon Brown’s Cyprus advisor and a Labour Party Deputy Chair.

Barry Gardiner, Labour MP for Brent North, quit as Brown’s Special Envoy for Forestry (though that didn’t stop Gordon Brown subsequently trying to sack him anyway) accusing Brown of, “vacillation, loss of international credibility and timorous political manoeuvres that the public cannot understand.”

So far, twenty-odd Labour MPs are calling for a leadership contest, either in public or in private – and in a bizarre ferrets in sack twist we know about the ones calling for it in private because a member of Gordon Brown’s team has been leaking details.
