- Michael Howard’s resigned – I think too early. Should have left it six months to see the lay of the land and give the newly re-elected Malcolm Rifkind time to raise his (largely untainted) profile. Could split the party again like this.
- Lib Dems up to 62. The nation of Cornwall is entirely Lib Dem. But can they consolidate their gains?
- David Trimble is out. Northern Ireland continues to count. Slugger O’Toole keeps tabs on the situation. Looks like the Ulster Unionists are screwed.
- Blair spouts nonsense, looks like he’s going to be a lame duck. Prime Minister Brown within two years, depending on external events, I reckon (and hope).
