At risk of looking like Mystic Mogg, it appears that our illustrious leader has decided to
capitalise on his favourable position in the polls seek a mandate from the electorate and call a general election this autumn (or at least he’s told the unions he’s going to). This is the first time since 1974 that a Parliament has not lasted at least four years and could set a constitutional precedent for a new PM calling an election if they take over mid-term (either that or muddy further what are already muddy waters). Although I have to say I can see why Brown is doing this given the position the Tories are in. Will the result be much different from last time I wonder.
