Rebel MPs plot Blair challenge (Michael White, March 23, 2002, The Guardian)
A hardcore of leftwing Labour MPs are privately pressing for some form of public challenge to Tony Blair's leadership of the party as a means of reining him in and - if necessary - replacing him with Gordon Brown. They believe an attitudinal sea change is under way, reflecting the disappointment of activists, unions and voters.

We still see Blair doing a Churchill : bolting Labour (with Churchill it was the Liberals) for the Conservatives and leading the Party back to power. Posted by Orrin Judd at March 23, 2002 2:30 PM
