NEW POLL: will Gordon Brown last for another year?

Today marks the first anniversary of Gordon Brown succeeding Tony Blair as Labour Prime Minister. But with Labour sinking in the political doldrums, the question is: will this be the last anniversary he celebrates in Number 10?

There are three possible reasons why it could be, in descending order of likelihood:

1. The Labour party concludes Mr Brown is an electoral liability and forces him out, either through a leadership challenge or a visit by ‘the men in grey suits’;

2. Mr Brown himself concludes he can no longer win the British public back to Labour, and quits for the good of the party;

3. He calls a general election and loses.

Or, of course he might still be PM in another year’s time.

Which of the four possibilities outlined do you think is most likely? Now’s your chance to vote – eyes right to cast your ballot.

  • We will have an election in two years time, but more to the point is why are the Lib Dem’s still behind, lets be honest Labour are struggling like hell and the lib Dem’s are still in third place, the question is why.

    Clegg is a Blair look alike but sounds like Brown, and somethings missing. perhaps it’s a voice.

    Or then again voting or not voting on things have made me look at what would the Lib Dems do in power and the feeling is not a lot.
