A THURROCK MP has slammed his fellow MP’s who have demanded a secret ballot to challenge the leadership of Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
MP’s Geoff Hoon and Patricia Hewitt attempted to drum up support among Labour MP’s.
Andrew Mackinlay said: “I have nothing but disdain for people who operate in this way.
“This has been a very good week for the government and the country. Indeed, we had the good news regarding DP World, so we can do without these idiotic diversions.
“The truth is and I have heard this from the public, who have a tremendous sense of fair play, that the sympathy for Gordon Brown may well pay dividends.
