So 55% of Labour voters want to see Brown step down as Prime Minister. If you take into account that polls are estimating Labour's support in the high twenties and last weeks’ local elections gave Labour only 24% of the popular vote – it’s all bad news for Brown. If only 24% of the public would vote for Labour and only 45% of those believe Brown should continue in his job, then that indicates that less than 11% of the voting population want Gordon Brown to lead this country. Surely Gordon should be getting the message by now?
Is having the confidence of less than 11% of voters a poor enough endorsement of his leadership to call for a vote of no confidence? I think it is. I wonder what David Cameron is thinking?
