No one believes in Brown's Labour any more -

See this report [on the Red Rag blog] of Eric Joyce resigning as Bob Ainsworth's PPS. Remember Eric Joyce is a rare figure on the Labour benches, someone who has served in the military, even if he had a chip on his shoulder the size of the Blackpool tower, he at least understands loyalty and duty - unlike Brown and his second rate hangers on .

The Times reports Joyce as saying “I do not think the public will accept for much longer that our losses can be justified by simply referring to the risk of greater terrorism on our streets.”

I told you the public won't put up with this !

Joyce ... understand loyalty and duty? Er ... don't think so!

@Richard - your point on loyalty is a fair one.

I just wish that MPs felt a stronger tie to country than party. I can't help thinking that Labour would never pass a Norway Debate type test ( perhaps we will find out soon ), and I'm worried that the other parties have too many careerists to guarantee a pass either.
