This comment from the Daily Mail sums up the pathetic Bananaman and how his cowardice has now ensured he will never be Labour leader - the very thought of this wanker in the job was fucking laughable in the first place.
THE REAL LOSER OF THIS PATHETIC PLOT
So Gordon Brown is still Prime Minister, his authority diminished a little further, but his right to remain in No10 until the bitter end apparently unchallenged.
The two pathetic plotters - Geoff Hoon and Patricia Hewitt - gathered no public support from their colleagues. The electorate - who would have been horrified by a divisive Labour leadership contest months before the General Election - will surely welcome their failure.
Ironically, the only minister seriously damaged was the one who the plot's perpetrators probably hoped would replace Mr Brown. David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, was tested and found wanting.
Brown holds on: The Prime Minister with David Miliband - the man who would succeed him if he would only stop bottling it
As a senior member of the Government, he had a choice. He could have grabbed this opportunity to topple Mr Brown, demonstrating contemptible disloyalty - and the ruthlessness required in anyone who aspires to be Prime Minister. Or, concluding that this was the wrong moment, he could have backed his leader quickly and unequivocally. The hapless Mr Miliband did neither, dithering all day before issuing a lukewarm statement of 'support'.
This is the third time Mr Miliband has contemplated rebellion and then bottled it. In July 2008, he wrote a provocative newspaper article, before denying that he wanted the top job. And when James Purnell resigned from the Cabinet last year, once again Mr Miliband ducked the opportunity to remove Mr Brown. Yet this is the man who Tony Blair apparently sees as his natural heir. An undistinguished Foreign Secretary, with poor political judgment and, when put to the test, lacking in courage.
Whatever happens to Labour in the future, it's hard to see how Mr Miliband could ever be the right choice to lead it.
There is nothing I can add to this that I haven't already said about the fucking twats in the post below - these idiots really make you proud to be British!
This next video sees Alex Smith of LabourList and Harold Cole, (Tory Bear), discussing the issue on Sky News - Alex Smith's comments are very interesting to say the least - I would even go as far as saying that he is being intentionaly candid.
