The moment the polls closed - the knives are out for Brown!

Within a minute of the European Election polls closing, we had Nick Robinson on the BBC1 10pm news telling us James Purnell (Work & Pensions Secretary) is resigning from the Governing to force a leadership election within the Labour Party. His letter of resignation says he wants Brown to stand down.

Another 'senior' back-bench MP (name not noted, sorry) said he believed a secret leadership ballot would result in Brown being forced out.

It is probably 'curtains' for Brown very soon. And not before time!
