Election - or not?

As the country builds to a fever pitch about whether or not Gordon Brown will call an election, one can almost taste the excitement in the air. Not.

In what must be one of the dullest preambles to an election ever, we are supposed to be bothered about whether some overpaid, under-worked careerists want to save their jobs.

Personally, I don't think it will get called until next year at the earliest, but the ducks are clearly being lined up to allow the choice to be made.

The Pre-Budget Report has been moved forward to next week, after the MPs all return from their excessively long holidays, with the clear implication that a budget to reward key sectors will be followed by an election announcement, and us all gratefully re-electing Gordon Brown for demonstrating his munificence.

I may be proved wrong, but I don't see him taking the chance of losing and being remembered as the shortest serving PM ever.
