That's the latest Guardian/ICM poll. This is Labour's lowest level of support since the poll began in 1984. There's no obvious way out for Labour. Sure, they could ditch Gordon but any successor would, I suspect, be compelled to call an election since I think it unlikely the public will stomach consecutive unelected Prime Ministers and it's equally unlikely that a new leader could actually win an election anyway. The party's over - as it deserves to be since no party should be in office for more than a decade anyway.
