Give us any leader but Gordon Brown, say voters
Peter Riddell and Philip Webster
"Almost half of voters think that anyone would do a better job than Gordon Brown as Labour leader.
"Nine months at most from a general election, a Populus poll for The Times suggests that 48 per cent of voters believe that literally anyone from Labour's ranks could do better, without naming alternatives. Only a third say that Mr Brown is the best leader available to Labour.
"The stark conclusion, coming as Mr Brown prepares to address the TUC today in one of his most important speeches, confirms that he has a mountain to climb to win a fourth term for Labour next spring. While there is no evidence of any renewed attempt to remove the Prime Minister, 61 per cent see him as a liability to Labour compared with 34 per cent who consider him an asset."
