Not so much lame duck as dead duck...

We live in interesting times, having toughed it out with his internal (and not so internal) critics and from his increasingly beleaguered perspective, having dropped some dissenting fellow travellers over the side, Gordon Brown has survived to limp on. The reason why this is interesting is because having had an electoral pasting all Gordon can offer labour MP's is the less than palatable choice of hanging together or hanging individually.

In Wales for some of Gordon's motley crew that is not much of a choice, especially as 15 of the constituencies held by sitting Labour MP's were lost at the polls on Sunday evening. The note of quiet and despair that surrounded the handful of Labour activists at the count on Sunday evening was noticeable, I think that the next few months are going to be particularly interesting.
