Brown coup plot shows UK Labour 'deeply divided' - Cameron

BBC News reports of another plot against British Prime Minister Gordon Brown seem certain to the problems facing the Labour leader six months out from a General Election.   BBC News - Brown coup plot shows Labour 'deeply divided' - Cameron

According to recent opinion polls the British public are in the mood for change.  Some polls, however, have shown a closing of the gap meaning that Labour may still have an opportunity to pluck victory from the jaws of defeat if they can hold enough seats and if the Liberal Democrats attract sufficient support to prevent the Conservatives from winning an outright majority.

However, we consider that such an outcome is still highly unlikely barring any major errors by the Conservative leadership.  One thing is clear.  Whichever party wins the next election it faces a major challenge to re-invigorate the stalled British economy.
