Do you want the bad news? Brown's going nowhere

Wonder why the election hasn't been called yet? And why there's no pressure on Brown to do so? Apparently Brown has uncovered a loop hole where he can postpone the election in the event of a war or time of economic strife. Despite Labour's calls that the recession is over, the figures tell otherwise and despite our continental neighbours pulling out of the red, the truth is that we are still heavily stuck in a recession rut.

With the polls putting Labour and Conservative neck-in-neck and the Lib Dems not far behind, Gordon Brown can put the argument forward to the Queen that the country is too unstable to have an election where the outcome is likely to result in a weak administration and/or hung parliament.

It is thought that he can therefore push the election date back to six months, even as late as October. It makes TTG's blood boil - all that door knocking in snow, sleet and rain to discover that it won't be happening after all. It is disgraceful and TTG hopes her readers will support her campaign to put pressure on the government not to cave in to this ridiculous loophole. It is the action of a dying administration determined to hang on at all costs. A sad day for British democracy.

Get Labour out now!

*UPDATE - This is of course an April Fool's but knowing Brown, it's not totally detached from reality.

Is this an April Fool or a serious comment. The circumstances have to be 'exceptional' for GB not to call a General Election before June.
I am 99% certain this will not happen.

Why would Gordon Brown go to the Queen and ask for Parliament not to be dissolved because the country is 'heavily stuck in a recession rut'? This is not a reason to postpone an election.

Also it would be political suicide.

I think you need to think things through before writing a blog.

Nice one! The only minor worry at the back of my mind is that today's satire all too often has the drawback of becoming tomorrow's reality...
