Today: The ground beneath his feet

If ever we needed to be reminded, those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it. And so we see Tony Blair walking on quick-drying sand. The first few edges have crumbled away and whether he can stop it turning into a landslip we have yet to see.

But the fact that some MPs have broken cover is ominous for Blair. The blood is again in the water and there are only so many times you can throw thew Press Sharks a distracting steak.

The left wing Kraken is stirring and may yet awake. The concern the Labour party may have is not whether Gordon Brown will take over sooner or later, but what damage will occur in the meantime. It has been years since the word 'Split' has been used with any regularity when describing the New Labour, but that doesn't mean that they don't exist.

I will await what might happen from hereon in. However don't be shocked if there is bloodletting, turmoil and angst, even as Blair organises his US lecture tour.

Read what Nick Robinson has to say on this.
