Good work, comrades

Friday morning: 'Labour modernisers' representing the Progress Pamphlet Tendency including Alan Milburn, Tessa Jowell, Hazel Blears and James Purnell leak to the Guardian that Labour government faces defeat at the hands of the Tories. and urges Gordon Brown to adopt radical Blairite reforms, else all is lost.

Friday lunchtime: Neal Lawson, chair of the Compass Pamphlet Tendency, writes that Labour government faces defeat at the hands of the Tories, and urges Gordon Brown to adopt radical Compass reforms, else all is lost.

Friday afternoon: Labour retake the lead in the opinion polls, polls suggest government now more popular than at the time of the 2005 election. It is not believed that any pamphlets were responsible for this. Derek Conway was unavailable for comment.
