As ever, there is talk about all the possible combinations relating to the election.
" The polling evidence suggests that the anti-Government vote will split so many ways, to the benefit of the Greens, UKIP and the repugnant BNP, that the Tories will not win sufficient seats in the North.
And there's another reason for the Tory concerns. They're still not ruling out the possibility of Brown stepping aside, or being forced out of office by Lord Mandelson, and an interim leader leading Labour into the election.
The tearoom talk, evidently, is of Alan Johnson, the Hull MP, becoming Prime Minister and running the country until polling day – while Harriet Harman, Labour's deputy leader, runs the election campaign."
The bit about anti-Government vote is interesting. It shows how much the Tories still have to make up in order to get a vote for them rather than a vote against Labour.
I still have a feeling Gordy might get forced out just before the election, though I think the election date should be fixed.
