Things are not looking good for the government. The expenses thing has accounted for a number of MPs, some of whom will be leaving under a cloud, and now it seems there's a letter circulating among backbenchers calling for Gordon to step down. He won't, of course. He spent a decade waiting for his chance to be Prime Minister and the keys to Number Ten will have to be pried from his cold dead fingers.
I can't remember anything quite like this happening before.
