Are Labour on the verge of civil war?

This Telegraph piece seems to suggest so.

According to The Telegraph:

  • Former PM Tony Blair says the 50p tax rate announced in Chancellor Alistair Darling's budget is a "terrible mistake."

  • Blair would have CUT taxes not increased them.

  • "New Labourites" believe the move has cost Labour any chance of winning the next election.

  • Insiders want a new leader... and an election.

  • Party discipline is to be tightened in coming weeks amid fears of MPs speaking out against the PM and a challenge to Brown's leadership.

Things looking a wee bit grim for New Labour then.

Oh, and by the way, if you want to add your name to the Number 10 petition calling on Gordon Brown to resign, you can do so here. I expect you'll find a couple of Labour MPs have signed up by the end of the week...

The Telegraph? Oh well, must be true then.

Note the question mark in the title. I'm asking, not telling. But the evidence does seem to suggest so - Telegraph report or not.
