Something going on in the political world?

I'm not sure, but I'd hazard a guess that something is up in the world of politics. Shots of reporters outside Number 10, interviews with Party heads. It all seems to be suggesting something, but I can't quite lay my finger on it.

Yes it's the general election and as a surprise to none it's been called to coincide with the district elections on May 6th. As I say it's not as if you could miss it, the media have gone election-happy and are deluging the airwaves with opinion polls and their opinion on the opinion polls and probably someone else's opinion on their opinion on the opinion polls. In other words they're doing all the things they normally do when they think there's a big story, but don't actually have any information to give.

Brown sets election date, Brown asks Queen to dissolve Parliament, that's all the facts there are. Now sure if he'd chosen a different date you could have a lot of talking heads complaining about the waste of taxpayers money holding two elections, how he's trying to hold on to the last minute, or calling it early. As it is there's nothing to say, and that's what they're continuously telling us.

Oh, is that what all the chatter is about? Sorry, I've been in another country with no TV for the past week.

So when is this election anyway?
