Malcolm who?

Today's news that Malcolm Meacher is to stand as a candidate against Gordon Brown in Labour's long announced and increasingly boring leadership swap or contest reminds me of a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Admittedly Mr Meacher is a slightly more charismatic person than Labour's previous left-winger Michael Foot whose presence as a leader just happened to coincide with the party's near death experience.

It looks to me as if, Labour will find it hard enough, to remain in power, with the personable, warm and jolly Gordon Brown and absolutely no chance with Malcolm Meacher who appears to have spent the last few years working his way, with some success, from the middle ranks of the Labour Party into almost total obscurity.
