So how do you remove a Labour Prime Minister? He can be replaced at their Conference, assuming enough MPs can get the correct forms in to the NEC in the correct time-scales. But there’s the tricky issue of getting the NEC to issue these forms in the first place - there’s a precedent that they do not issue these papers while the Leader is serving as Prime Minister. The machinery of the Labour Party is set up to make it impossible for MPs to remove the Prime Minister with a democratic process.
Yes, folks, I think we might be in the delightful position of watching Captain Brown sail the Labourtanic into the general election and still hang on until the next conference.
It is simply too fucking delicious for words.
