A live report from the Central Lobby in the House of Commons by Channel 4 news Gary Gibbon with Plymouth Sutton MP Linda Gilroy suggests that Gordon Brown making his second appearance at the regular Monday Parliamentary Labour Party meeting in three weeks is in listening mode.
A review is underway to minimise the losses likely to be incurred by some 5.3 million low-paid working and retired people.
Linda Gilroy said that the Prime Minister was focussed on ensuring the stability of the economy, but now acknowledged that something had to be done to deal with the downside of abolishing the 10p tax band.
This is very welcome news. It takes a big man to tacitly acknowledge a possible problem arising from a decision you took yourself earlier.
UPDATE: Channel 4 closing headlines confirm a contrite Labour Party leader under intense pressure to deliver asap.
