Can Tony Blair lose?

Oh, it's a fantasy, but Reg Keys' campaign against the PM is picking up momentum:

Ramsay MacDonald was defeated whilst Prime Minister in a North Eastern constituency we are reminded by Derek Cattell, a member of Sedgefield Labour Party’s executive committee for ten years, who is quitting in protest at the Iraq war which he says raises questions about the "honesty and integrity" of Mr Blair’s leadership.

Derek Cattell, who is also a regional organiser with the GMB union, is putting his weight behind Reg Key's campaign, saying he can't vote through gritted teeth for Blair.

As he promised, David Shayler has stood down from his Sedgefield candidacy to allow Reg Keys, father of a military policeman killed in Iraq, a clear shot at Blair.

You can but hope.
