Labour MP’s Threaten By-Election Nightmare For Gordon Brown
By Tory Aardvark
More bad news for Gordon Brown as the expenses scandal continues to cause damage to all parties, especially Labour.
Mixed messages from Brown and Harriet Harman about the Legg demands have done little to cast Brown in a positive light.
There are allegedly 5 Labour MP’s who are considering resigning immediately and forcing by-elections in safe seats, apparently their Legg demands are so big that this is the most economic way for them to hang on their ill gotten gains.
The message is simple: if Brown doesn’t curb Legg’s retrospective cap, then he faces a string of potentially devastating by-election losses. “It’s Gordon’s nightmare – by-elections in safe seats in the depths of winter,” says one source. more from Paul Waugh
When will MP’s of all parties wake up and do themselves some favours instead of clutching on to money they should never claimed for.
