Labour politicians are caught on the horns of a dilemma: should they ditch the Prime Minister? And if he goes, would it really alter their fate at the next election? A plague on all your houses is the mood of the voters, but is constitutional reform the answer to the scandal over expenses? Financial prudence was the slogan of Mr Brown's years at the Treasury, so why is he getting the blame now for trouble in the banking sector? And, poor little rich girl: the perils of the high earner in the new age of austerity. Politics UK is presented by Dennis Sewell.
