According to the BBC, the meeting of the PLP went by without note and the rebels stayed silent. I warned they wouldn't have the nouse to go through with the task of removing Mr Brown. Labour MPs have chosen their captain to go down with the ship.
However, what I thought was interesting was the degree to which Brown now relies not just on his cabinet as a whole but a few figures within it.
Note during today's photocall with the Prime Minister launching a stratgey to give out free laptops and internet access to low income families, there lurking in the background was ... Lord Mandelson and Ed Balls. The 2 men currently keeping Brown where he is.
Oh, and during all of this tonight's polls show significant Tory leads. Thank God Labour MPs don't wonder why!
