Gordon Brown has hung on to power with what can only be described as pathetic desperation. The flood of people deserting the sinking ship has been incredible to see. The Local election results have been disastrous, totally wiping out Labour across the entire country. And yet Gordon Brown hangs on - shamelessly leading his party to a crushing defeat that could be avoided if he could put his party before himself.
It's quite obvious that those Cabinet ministers that haven't resigned have been bought off by Brown. It's sickening to think that our country is being governed by such shallow men and women. We now have a Chancellor that the Prime Minister doesn't want, but is too weak to remove.
However, there is another chance for the Labour party to get rid of Brown. Sunday's European Election results are likely to be very bad for Brown and Labour. If the results are as bad as expected, then Labour backbenchers may be spurred to send around their email asking MPs to back a leadership election. It could be the only chance for some of those backbench MPs to save their seats.
But there is a problem - Conservative voters could be about to throw Brown a lifeline. It looks likely that many of those who would normally vote Conservative, have in fact voted UKIP to protest against David Cameron's reluctance to promise a Referendum on the Lisbon Treaty after ratification. So while Labour are very likely to get hammered in the European Elections, Brown may be in the position to use the Conservative's poor results as a get out of jail free card. Brown will be able to claim that the expenses fiasco has damaged all the major parties and that the poor result cannot be pinned on him.
Could the Conservatives be about to save Gordon?
