Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So, let's see if I understand.

The Labour Party is trying to force Brown to resign, and they will fill his seat with a more likable person?  Aren't all Labour candidates tainted by this?  If your party is in such a bad condition that the leader of your country must resign, I mean, isn't there political fallout from that?  Is this normal?  It wasn't on my radar because this simply is not an option where I am from.  

How much of the meltdown is the fault of Labour and how much the fault of Brown?  Would simply replacing him with another Labour person make a big difference in the party's viability?  Could it prevent the conservatives from taking over?
