How much authority has Gordon Brown lost?

Louisa Compton | 08:17 AM, Tuesday, 28 April 2009

This time last week, he was on You Tube telling us all that he wanted Mps to get rid of their second home allowance and be paid a daily rate instead. Now, the vote's been scrapped because no-one can agree what to do. The Labour MP Geraldine Smith was meant to come on our programme today to ask you to tell her how to vote. Instead that vote's off and she's now tabled a Commons motion challenging the principle that politicians should be able to vote on expenses reform at all. We'll speak to her later this morning.
