Labour’s inept suicide bombers

Hoon and Hewitt’s suicide attack on Gordon Brown demonstrated all the competence of the Christmas pants bomber. They carried just enough explosives to splatter their own innards all over the Labour party, but no more.

With every clumsy, self-destructive coup launched by Brown’s enemies, it becomes increasingly and horrifyingly clear that he is, somehow, the most politically competent person in the PLP.

That this odd, feeble little farce of an effort could be thwarted by such lukewarm, half-hearted Cabinet support shows that plenty of Labour politicians – whatever their views of Brown – seem to be going through the motions, ambling towards defeat.
