There are rumours that the general election will be called tomorrow.
It seems unlikely that the Queen will agree to this during the weekend, but I guess that Brown could be seeing her Monday morning.
It would make sense – the risk of a double-dip recession is now so great that it would be sensible to get it over with before things get worse.
I’m not sure. It would make sense to call the election asap, but Brown is a ditherer, and it would be in his nature to hold it on the last possible day (in June, that is).
