Will there be a challenge to Brown today?

Just a little reminder to all watchers of the great debate on the Labour leadership.  Nominations close today for the chair of the Parliamentary Labour Party.

Now that Barry Sheerman has decided not to stand as a “Brown must go” candidate it will be interesting to see if there will be a token challenge. Hopi Sen doubts anything will happen, but John Rentoul says that this is an opportunity for Labour MPs do something about the leadership.

Whatever happens today the real danger for Brown will come in January, which is the last opportunity for Labour to make the change before the general election.
