PR is on the agenda. As early as next week
There is hyper-febrility among political journalists at the moment, and lots of speculation about a Labour leadership contest. What follows is not speculation but a reliably sourced fact...
Gordon Brown's cabinet colleagues have told him that "unless he is radical he is finished". What do they mean by radical? I have been told that he is being urged to launch a constitutional reform initiative consisting of two primary proposals:
1) An elected house of Lords
2) Proportional representation
I don't know whether he is minded to take that advice, nor what form of PR is being proposed. I do know those urging him to do this are senior cabinet members. Over and out.
