Open Warfare In The Labour Party As Purnell Kicks Off Blairite Coup.
In the end it didn't really matter who plunged the knife, as long as someone did. Purnell is a tax fiddling creep - one of the most despised Tories in the Labour party (well, ok, it was between him and Hazel Blears). But now I can feel in my water that this time this coup seems different, it seems real. I am finally confident that Brown is on his way. He lost the lefties before he even started, but without the Blairites and with the results from the election to come - Brown has little left to cling on to.
This is a great day for the Labour party, it is like a weight has been lifted from its shoulders. I really hope this is not another false dawn. Surely this is the real thing. A leadership election awaits and maybe those monthly subs are going to give us something back - a choice of Prime Minister and better than that, the end of Stalinist Labour.
*Just watching This Week at the moment and Diane Abbott is talking out of her arse yet again - saying that the left will unite behind Brown because of this Blairite coup. NO chance.
