"The Letter"

Guido has it. Given that it's the product of Blairite's like Hoon and Hewitt, it is, of course, full to the very brim with cant and hypocrisy:

As we move towards a General Election it remains the case that the Parliamentary Labour Party is deeply divided over the question of the leadership. Many colleagues have expressed their frustration at the way in which this question is affecting our political performance. We have therefore come to the conclusion that the only way to resolve this issue would be to allow every member to express their view in a secret ballot.

Well, if that's the case, you fuck knuckles, why didn't you fucking insist on a proper ballot when the one-eyed plague of locusts came to power? Where was your fucking concern for the precious Labour Party then you cunts? Give the Tories their due, their policies may be indistinguishable from Labour's, but at least they make it relatively simple to get rid of their leaders.

Update: Iain Martin has a classy summary of the fiasco:

Instead, it looks tonight as though Labour’s senior figures have once more chosen the worst possible option for their party. Just as they have done on previous occasions they opted to leave Brown in place whilst undermining him with faint or non-existent praise.

Better for them surely to make a clear choice by either ditching him for a fresh start, or keeping and then backing him properly with some force? No, they’ve ended up weakening their leader and leaving him in office, again. Genius.

Update: Leg-Iron is in full flow:

What Hoon and Hewitt have done is devastating. We are to be asked to vote for a party that clearly does not want to be led by the only man they can put up as a future Prime Monster. We are to be asked to vote in a Prime Monster who nobody, even his own limpets, want as Prime Monster.

What a start to Labour's election campaign.

They could have challenged Brown in May 2007 or again at the party conferences in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Instead they want to switch leaders a few months before the election in the hope that the novelty value of a new leader will sway voters.

Frankly I hope the succeed and Harriet Harman takes over.

'Twas only a question of time before the Hoon and his Blairite cohorts went after the hapless McBroon in one last desperate attempt to woo the fickle British public into thinking they can win the next election. I see the sticky, bloody hands of Lady Mendelson in all of this. Yon roaring poof thinks he's in with a chance of becoming PM.

The ensuing bloodbath should make entertaining viewing.

Is this just to distract us from Blairs appearance at the Iraq inquiry?

Why is Guido interested in this?

What is his agenda?

No, they won't want to change him yet - he's a useful scapegoat for when they lose the Election and even if they should win, Mandelbaum will replace him soon after the Election.
