The General Election

Has now been called for May 5th. Tony Blair went to Buckingham Palace this morning and the Queen will dissolve Parliament I think next Tuesday, giving a few quick days to clear the Parliamentary desks. There will be some campaigning this week, though campaigning will begin in earnest next week (the funeral of Pope John Paul the Great on Friday, and the marriage between Prince Charle sand Camilla Parker-Bowls on Saturday, will act as something of a restraint initially). Then it will be three weeks of insane verbal abuse as we try to fit in what the US does in, at the very least, about 9 weeks in a third of that time.

I had done a longer post raising some initial observations, but Blogger ate it, and I need to go to bed, so perhaps tomorrow.
