Has Politics become the new Pools?
It looks as if it is a question of which perm will win in the General Election (due on 6th May 2010) in what was supposd to be a two horse race.
David Cameron - looking quite queasy these days - wins outright
David Cameron has the most seats but not an overall majority
Gordon Brown is in Perm 2 spot
Nick Clegg's Lib Dems win 100-120 seats
Perm 5 was Perm 3
Gordon Brown seeks an accommodation with Nick Clegg; Clegg says for that to happen he must resign as PM; PM not minded; HM The Queen asks David Cameron to form a minority Government
PM resigns; Labour Party goes into melt down as it seeks a replacment leader; contenders include Harriet Harman. Jack Straw, David Miliband, Ed Miliband, Jon Cruddas & James Purnell. Parliament could be suspended whilst election happens as uncertainty clouds decision making; hardly desirable
PM stays on as PM and concedes the following Goverment positions to the Lib Dems - Chancellor (Vince Cable), Foreign Office (Nick Clegg), Works & Pensions (Chris Huhne) and Culture (Don Foster)
