British politics explained

Prodicus: 'In place of strife - Unite!' Mrs Dromey announces her candidacy.

Prodicus is on form. Do read the whole thing, but here's the nub of his thesis:

So, to recap, the deputy leader of the Labour Party is sleeping with the Hon. Treasurer of the Party who is a big cheese in Unite the Union which pays the Labour Party's bills by arrangement with, er, the Hon. Treasurer of the Labour Party which, by the will of its Leader, abusing his office as our (temporary) Prime Minister, gives lots of taxpayers' money (through its 'union modernisation fund') to, er, Unite the Union without whose support the Labour Party would be bankrupt and, er, out of business.

Now you are an expert.

Downing Street website petition asks Gordon Brown to resign | Politics | guardian.co.uk.
