Poor Gordie

Brown that is. This can’t be good.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown is facing the political fight of his life as his Labour Party gathers for its annual conference this weekend with several lawmakers openly calling for a new leader.

Fifteen months after taking over from Tony Blair, Brown’s popularity is in tatters with poll after poll showing Labour trailing the opposition Conservatives by some 20 points as the economy teeters on the brink of its first recession in 16 years.

Brownie does have this going for him:

But so far no credible challengers have shown their hand and cabinet ministers have so far rallied behind the prime minister with varying degrees of support.

By all accounts, unless something radically changes, Labour is headed for a serious electoral defeat.  Pack yer bags for the wilderness Labourites I say.  I think that is your next destination.
