From a Conservative perspective, Brown should stay on until he is given the order of the boot from the electorate.

Andrew,

I agree but I can't help wanting the sod to pay.

If we can survive his mismanagement, make him stay until an election.

Robin,

If we can get rid of him it's just possible whoever takes over will reconsider a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

He should never have been allowed to step up but he won't step down until he's kicked out by the electorate in May, 2010.

Mr Gruff,

If he is going to be challenged soon it will be announced tonight, in time for the Sunday papers.

It depends what the Labour Party want to achieve and what their view of the odds is.

If they want to get into power the GE after next, call a GE ASAP. The Tories would probably win or it could be a hung parliament. The Tories would cop a lot of the blame for the mess from Labour. I don't think that as a party, they have anything like that clarity of purpose.

If they hope something is going to turn up, and most of them fancy being out of a job in two years time rather than now, they'll stick it out. I also think that the tax and waste chickens will come home to roost, even more than they've done already, and if they try a scorched earth strategy, it will be seen through.

Brown or some other leader? I can't see them getting rid of Brown, but he might break.

I'd say they'll soldier on with Brown for another two years and be completely hammered in the GE, but who knows? Brown might stand down on Tuesday.
