OB - Nick Robinson was all over this about five minutes ago. He didn't quite say 'Brown is a dead man walking', but he might as well have done...

Brown is toast.
Appalling news. Brown is the greatest electoral asset that the Torys (and up here the SNP) have. We can only hope that Hattie Harperson steps up if Brown goes.

James Purnell has stepped down from the cabinet and told Prime Minister Gordon Brown to "stand aside"

In a letter to the Sun and the Times, the work and pensions secretary said he was not seeking the leadership but wanted to trigger a debate.

Mr Purnell is the third cabinet member to announce in the past few days they are standing down from cabinet.

Mr Brown is set to reshuffle his cabinet as he fights...

Sky stating Purnell said "Bowns continued leadership makes a Tory victory more,not less,likely" & has called for Brown to step down.
Some party twonk on Sky news called Graham Allen getting grilled,talking about Brown resigning as quickly as tommorow & Labour hopeing Broon makes the right choice.
Is it me or is Labour imploding?..

Fresh news: it is definitely a backstabbing!

Purnell informed Journalists before No 10 or Cabinet/Party colleagues.


Oooh, what a naughty boy!

I am watching a Newsnight special, idiot Liam Byrne is on, still talking in terms of labour holding out til next May. One thing for sure, there will be an election this year. Byrne is p*****g in the wind.

Edited to add, Michael Crick was on the phone to Downing St tonight when the news of Purnell broke out. The Downing St spokesman said it must be a mistake, they didn't have the first clue that Purnell was going to do it. Even though, sideburns was in contact with three national newspapers at 1800.

Brown has lost control tonight.

This is terminal.

No he's New Labour - that's how everything is announced.

What a fcuking joke of a government and a fcuking joke of a PM. It's been chaos almost from the outset of Cyclops's tenure. What happens now, a re-shuffle, then Cyclops ousted, a new (unelected) leader, another reshuffle :?

What's the point bothering with unimportant stuff like defence debates and running the country, fcuk it, lets just get on with the all important business of in-party fighting 8O

Switch to Question Time! Because of the timing of Purnell's announcement (i.e. while QT was being filmed) the Labour muppet just made a total arse of herself with her unflinching backing of Brown :)
