Is there going to be a revolution?

ITV news did an interesting translation of the local results into a national election, and half the cabinet lost their seats in the biggest landslide of all time. Of course this is rubbish but there is a serious point, if Labour's popularity continues to decline, or even if it flatlines, a lot of MPs are due to lose their seats. LabourHome is currently pretty quiet apart from one comment by Tony Hannon who says: "Thanks largely to national politicians, local councillors have been kicked out or shovelled in irrespective of the jobs they’ve been doing or are likely to do"; while he puts this in the context of the failure of local democracy, it is also could be a sign of things to come. Will there be a challenge to Brown?
