Blair To Get The Boot?
It seems increasingly likely that Tony Blair will face a no-confidence vote from within the Labour Party next month.
Deputy John Prescott, the man most likely to succeed him, told a recent closed meeting of the party's policy forum: "We have gone past the point where Tony Blair might step aside before the next election."
The Independent looks at how Blair's unpopularity is damaging the party:
"It is estimated that 25,000 have left the party in the past six months, and the membership total has halved to 208,000 from the peak when Mr Blair became Prime Minister, and is still believed to be falling."
