Is today the lowest point in Gordon Brown's premiership so far?

Reading through the papers this morning will not be a pleasant experience for Gordon Brown. Obviously the headline that is most likely to put Gordon off his porridge will be the YouGov poll which shows a 13 point lead for the Tories on 45%. This would translate to an election victory for the Conservatives with a majority of 102.

The Telegraph's Patrick Hennessy has a story which seems to be hinting at a falling out between Brown and Miliband. Miliband is denying a rift, but it is believed that David's supporters are not happy with the way Brown is treating him. Especially after Gordon ordered Miliband to tone down his EU speech.

Meanwhile David Cameron is calling on the LibDems to unite with Conservatives to fight against Gordon's "Big Government policy". There is even talk of the Greens being invited to the party. This is an idea that could bare fruit for Cameron, as the YouGov poll also showed that 90% of people believe that some or most of the money poured into public services has been wasted.

Just to add to Gordon' woes, up steps Jan Berry (Police Federation) to stick the boot in. Jan has claimed that targets destroy trust in the police. It is quite obvious that we will hear more from Jan Berry as the police pay dispute momentum builds. First with the EU referendum and now the police pay arbitration, the Government are getting a reputation for not honouring their promises.

The simple answer to your question, Steve, is probably not. I think we have further depths to plumb before we are rid of the Tartan McReich's F├╝hrer and his gang of skirt wearing Scotch carpetbaggers.

Mr Gruff,

A story in this morning's Telegraph is saying that Labour MPs are giving Brown until May.

Brown wanted a bunch of yes-men when he appointed his ridiculously inexperienced cabinet. It was naive of him to think that everyone was going to lie down and take it.

LFAT,

It doesn't help that rumours of Brown being a bit nutty are circulating.
