NEW POLL: will Gordon Brown last for another year?

by Stephen Tall on June 23, 2008

Today marks the first anniversary of Gordon Brown succeeding Tony Blair as Labour Prime Minister. But with Labour sinking in the political doldrums, the question is: will this be the last anniversary he celebrates in Number 10?

There are three possible reasons why it could be, in descending order of likelihood:

1. The Labour party concludes Mr Brown is an electoral liability and forces him out, either through a leadership challenge or a visit by ‘the men in grey suits’;

2. Mr Brown himself concludes he can no longer win the British public back to Labour, and quits for the good of the party;

3. He calls a general election and loses.

Or, of course he might still be PM in another year’s time.

Which of the four possibilities outlined do you think is most likely? Now’s your chance to vote – eyes right to cast your ballot.
