One said: "We can still turn this round but Gordon is not listening. He is lashing out and reacting to headlines. It's all so reminiscent of the last months of John Major."
Another said: "We are giving the impression that we have lost control of our own side. We have to get a grip, give him better advice, otherwise there will be more talk of leadership challenges, which is the last thing we want."
Tom Harris, MP (A Jockey waiting to ride the stalking horse) said things were "as bad as they've ever been".
UPDATE: The House of Commons is censoring details of expense claims.
