Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Aren't all Labour candidates tainted by this?

Agreed. But we see that from the outside. Those too close to the power centre is another thing -- especially the Bliarites.

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?

In theory, one can hope for that to pass, and making a turnaround in the months left until the next elections have to be called. (In practice, it did happen just at the last elections here in Hungary: the year before, the then PM was toppled.)

How much of the meltdown is the fault of Labour and how much the fault of Brown?

Well, the meltdown is a wave of resignations, an internal affair. As for whether Brown can take the blame for the triggers of the meltdown... I doubt it.
