"Enormous goodwill among MPs" towards Ming - The Independent

Sir Menzies enjoys enormous goodwill among his MPs, who regard him as an elder statesman, and there will be no attempt at a coup, partly because after the removal of Charles Kennedy as leader, another bloodletting could prove counter-productive with voters.

    and the same article also said ""Pressure is coming from all sides now, things have got worse over the last week. They just think he has been carved up by Brown and made to look flat-footed. It is impossible for there to be a coup but people are privately talking about Menzies reflecting over the summer and doing the decent thing.""

  2. Yes, I know, I read it.

    But the quote I gave was actually written by the Independent journalists themselves. It was not a quote. The quote you given was, if memory serves (I can't retrieve the article at the moment) came from "unnamed sources" or something like that didn't it?
