Alan Simpson issued the message to the Prime Minister that Left-wingers are prepared to desert him unless he changes the way he is governing. Mr Brown fought off a threatened coup last month which the Left of the party did not join. He clung on, with his allies defusing the revolt by warning of a snap election if he was replaced. But Mr Simpson, a member of the Socialist Campaign Group, today said many of his fellow backbenchers are poised to move against Mr Brown in the New Year if Labour still has dismal poll ratings and faces disaster at the next general election. The Nottingham South MP said: If the Left get involved, you would have the numbers and it would become serious for Gordon. Mr Simpson believes a new leader could enjoy a bounce in the polls in a honeymoon period before the election. He said: You would probably have Alan Johnson just dragooned in. It would be an interesting contest, Postman Pat v Eton Toff. He said a three to four per cent jump in the polls under a new leader could save dozens of MPs their seats. Mr Simpson was angered by the forcing out of Left-wing MP Ian Gibson over expenses, triggering the Norwich North by-election which Tory Chloe Smith won last week. Warned: Gordon Brown MPstellequalitychief:Getyouracttogether PLEASE RECYCLE YOUR COPY OF LITE RESPONSIBLY PA MONOPLANE designed by Louis Bleriot, the first pilot to fly an aircraft over the Channel, is on display at Selfridges in Oxford Street. It was flown over the Channel by Swede Mikael Carlson yesterday. He had wanted to make the flight on Saturday, the date of the centenary, but was foiled by high winds.Flight of fancy: pilot Mikael with the monoplane today at Selfridges Lift-off at Selfridges Farefleecing byrailfirmsRAIL companies were slammed today for fleecing commuters with fare increases. A scathing report by MPs accused the industry of clobbering travellers with rises of up to 11 per cent. The cross-party transport select committee said ticket buyers had to go to extraordinary lengths to benefit from cheap deals, while back-door fare rises, such as stiff charges to reserve a seat, had been brought in. PMPs are to investigate Britains equalities watchdog which is in turmoil over its chairman Trevor Phillips. Six commissioners have quit the organisation and it faces questions over its financial affairs. The Commons communities and local government committee, which oversees the work of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, is set to demand answers from Mr Phillips, 55, about its management. The committees Labour chairwoman Phyllis Starkey said: I imagine that when we return in the autumn we may well be wanting to review the operations of the EHRC. The commission does incredibly important work. Trevor clearly needs to take steps to address the concerns and bring the organisation together. He needs to get a grip. The National Audit Office criticised the commission for paying nearly 324,000 to seven senior staff re- employed after taking generous early severance packages. Ben Summerskill, of gay rights group Stonewall, attacked Mr Phillipss leadership when he quit as a commissioner last week.Losing staff: Phillips Making a movie about being a mother doesnt make me rush out, get drunk, get married in Vegas and have babies -- 36-year-old CaMeron Diaz, left, on playing mother figures as she gets older If it wasnt for a Gurkha who saved my father I wouldnt be here...which is a grim thought -- Joanna LuMLey is hailed a goddess in nepal after winning gurkhas the right to live in Britain I just come up here every year to kiss the girls -- PauL MCCartney honouring graduates from the institute for performing arts in liverpool DiStriBution HeLPLine: If you have any comments about the distribution of London Lite, ring 020 7651 5276, or email distribution@thelondonlite.co.uk On the Tube JOURNEY PLANNER For the easiest way to get around London visit tfl.gov. uk and click on Journey Planner London travel information Call 020 7222 1234 24-hours textphone 020 7918 3015 travel alerts receive free real-time travel info on your mobile or email, subscribe at tfl.gov. uk/travelalerts for more information on oyster, visit oystercard.com Lu Customer services for inquiries, call 0845 330 9880 between 8am and 8pm daily Congestion charging for payment details call 0845 900 1234 or visit cclondon. com London travelwatch Call 020 7505 9000 or visit londontravel watch.org.uk Roadwatch Camberwell new road, Camberwell: works at Camberwell station rd.
