The pressure is starting to tell on all, although there is a history. A “Blairite Minister” told the BBC’s Nick Robinson yesterday:
It would be an absolute fucking disaster if Gordon Brown was Prime Minister and I will do everything in my power to fucking stop him.
Putting aside the fact that anyone deluded enough to still call themselves a “Blairite Minister” now has fuck-all power, it seems to show exactly the same disregard for the party and the country that all Blairites have been accusing Brown of.
Anyway, I’d like to think that, at about 4pm yesterday, Labour MPs had a pager message reading:
Dear Labour MPs,
Everyone shut the fuck up otherwise we’re all fucking fucked.
