Election Date Revealed

After weeks of speculation, I can at least reveal that Gordon Brown is to call the election yesterday. This generous move saves all the political parties millions in campaign expenses and, at a stroke, solves the Cameron problem. Retrospectively, all can now agree on the darkened room, the revolver and the bottle of whisky - as long, says the party treasurer, as he doesn't drink the whisky. The result was, of course, a Labour landslide with a 99.9% turnout. In a moving victory speech, Brown will have said he would govern for all the people except Tony Blair whose heavily-guarded Connaught Square home was be compulsorily purchased and demolished to make way for an enormous concrete statue of Gordon Brown, leader for life.

  1. good to hear Iain Dale on this morning's radio talking about blogging, news and politics. He doesn't make enough money from advertising - yet - to give up his day job, apparently. good to hear him because I'm not sure who he is - I think they overestimated the power of blogging. It's a bit like scouting for an olympic swimmer in a public baths on an august bank holiday.

    he gets more readers than The New Statesman! (Is that a good thing? I'm not very good at these ''the size of Wales'' comparisons.)
