In the excitement, pb1 seems to be on air only intermittently. I've therefore reposted the main thread here so that refugees from pb1 can make their contributions:
How serious is the Hewitt/Hoon move?
News is just breaking that the former chief whip, Geoff Hoon along with the former cabinet minister, Patricia Hewitt, have sent a message to all Labour MPs calling for a secret ballot to resolve the leadership issue once and for all.
The fact that Hoon is a former chief whip gives this an added credence.
Is there real momentum behind this?
