TOP Cabinet Ministers will tell Gordon Brown to quit in January unless his poll ratings improve dramatically.
 
And Alan Johnson is now ready to stand as a replacement PM if Mr Brown goes.
 
Mr Johnson has repeatedly ruled out standing against Mr Brown in a leadership challenge.
 
The Home Secretary also said he does not want the top job. But a Cabinet colleague told the News of the World he has changed his mind and will go for it — if Mr Brown steps aside.
 
The source said: “In January the PM will have to take an honest look at himself and decide whether he will lead the Labour Party to a disastrous defeat.
 
“If the answer’s yes, which it probably will be, he’s got to do the honourable thing.”
 
MPs who support Mr Johnson, a former postman, believe he could rally support for Labour. They may still lose the election but the majority could be narrow. Many believe David Cameron could win a landslide against Mr Brown.
