"This Government does not need another relaunch, still less another shifting of the deckchairs on the Titanic. It needs putting out of its misery – and fast."
That's my verdict on the Government's current troubles, as set out in my Saturday Column and accompanying Podcast.
Charles Clarke is clearly on the way out and I doubt that John Prescott will be that far behind him - but I don't think either of these things are going to fundamentally alter the fortunes of this increasingly wretched government.
Only a change at the top will do that.
