12 months ago we had a lively debate when I asked the question, "would Brown call a snap election?" That the political radar atop Bumper Towers proved to be a bit wonky is self evident; I still think though, he should have gone to the polls early rather than face polling evisceration this coming May. But I don't think he will. I think he'll resign / spontaneously combust / be forced out early next year, some months before the election. The Dark Lord will become PM and take Labour into the election. Why? It's the only hope they have.................. and cornered politicians facing life on the Street will do anything.. anything to save themselves. At best, Labour might do enough to hang on to power with the help of the Liberals, or save enough seats to make life difficult for the Tories. Brown anyway is a busted flush and is showing the signs of being a defeated man. I would think they've laid the strategy out already and planning is advanced. I heard that Blair and Mandleson spent the day together recently....... with Gadaffi's son oddly enough. True or not...... I'm confident the scheming sods are planning to stitch up the electorate again and foist an unelected PM on us. Thoughts?
