The split on the left
It isn't just the moderate wing of the Labour Party that has had some differences of opinion about the PM pre-conference.
The Labour Hard Left is at war with itself. Campaign for Labour Party Democracy and Socialist Action were leafletting Labour Party conference calling for delegates to defend Brown, and my own local MP Diane Abbott circulated a report to her GC yesterday praising Brown's speech. However, their comrades in Labour Left Briefing are "angry with this approach", have "three strikes - Crewe, Glasgow E, Glenrothes - and you're out" on the front cover of their journal, and its editorial even praises lifelong Trot-basher Siobhain McDonagh for her "call for a wider debate".
Soft left Compass also seems to have some internal issues - Jon Cruddas is backing Brown but not quite clear where Neal Lawson and others are on this.
