Former Labour MP Lord Soley, has possibly signalled Labour's intentions for the general election next year.
He said on The Daily Politics this morning...
"What I would hope would happen is, when we do have the election, almost certainly early next year...then I think people will, I hope, and indeed I hope the media will, pay more attention to individual candidates than they often do in the past. Very often, general elections are about this leader or that leader..."
So, Labour don't want people to look to Gordon Brown's leadership as an indicator or reason for a decision on who to vote for.
A damning verdict for Gordon Brown.
