    Will there be a challenge from the Labour left?

    The Independent today reports that left wingers in Blair's Labour Party are hoping to have enough support to launch a leadership contest at next years party conference. It appears that at present they have the support of around 36 MPs, they need 71 MPs to launch their challenge. If you believe that the Labour Party needs to return to its roots, and that it needs to get rid of the Tories currently in charge of the party, and you have a Labour MP in your area, then please contact them, and urge them to support such a challenge:

    Left-wingers were already discussing a plan to oppose Gordon Brown when the Prime Minister stands down. Some have suggested Michael Meacher, the former environment minister, who has told friends he believes there should be a contest. Other names under discussion are Alan Simpson, a leading member of the Campaign Group, and Frank Dobson, the former health secretary, who is passionately opposed to Mr Blair's health reforms.
