Will Gordon Brown step aside if the Labour Party is ousted from power?

As we approach the next general election there is some debate about the political future of Gordon Brown if the Labour Party is beaten at the next election. While there's no doubt that he will reconsider his future if he is not re-elected, at this moment in time it appears that he would like to remain as leader of the party even in opposition.

However, as we have seen over the last few months there is no doubt that Gordon Brown does have his enemies within the Labour Party and they will make an attack if he is defeated at the next election. He has been wounded on many occasions and many people believe that Lord Mandelson effectively saved his political career when he stepped back into the political limelight and backed Gordon Brown to the hilt. However, much power has now been passed over to Lord Mandelson and indeed if he believes Gordon Brown should step down after the election there is every chance it will happen.

Many political experts believe that Gordon Brown is quite literally the figurehead of the Labour Party with others behind the scenes effectively pulling the strings. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen but there is no doubt that Gordon Brown is nowhere near as powerful as he was when he first took the reins at Number 10.
