Poisonous Team


It's been choppy sea's recently for Gordon Brown and what's left of his government after all the too do about MP's experiences, and now a day after the local elections we have the spectacle of ministers right-wing Blairite's attempting to bring down Brown.Throughout the day ministers to-ing and fro-ing from Downing Street have dominated the news headlines, professing their loyalty to the prime minister, as he seek's to isolate ex-work and pensions secretary James Purnell who resigned from government last night as the polls closed.

In the past month Brown has been attacked by an unlikely combination of Joanna Lumley, who was on the side of so-called public opinion over the Gurkhas, and Blairite's such as the then Communities Secretary, Hazel Blears, and Charles Clarke. Damian McBride, the Brown aide forced to resign after being caught disseminating smear stories about Tory politicians, Mr Clarke said he was not a "lone gun" but part of a "poisonous team". The illation was clear. Mr Brown was part of the poison.
