Sould Brown have called an Election and the Future of the Lib Dems

Wow, two days of blog posts, I’m back as a serious blogger!!! 😀

But anyway back to the title. Gordon Brown, has said ‘no’ to an election. Was that a good decision?

Due to the comments of the ‘young turks’, Balls et al, saying Labour where on a election footing and that. This draw back from the brink could have long term damage for Brown and Labour in general as it did for O’Callaghan. The Tories will definitely gain from this as they said ‘Bring it on’. David Cameron is on the up and up.

Now if an election had been called, it would not have benefited the Lib Dems, as they are being squeezed by the two major parties and to top it off, they have gotten rid of their leader after 18 months!!! Sir Ming was an excellent leader for the Lib Dems, and its internal bickering like this that turn people off the Lib Dems. I myself am thinking of switching to the Tories. Then again I’m not an dedicated Lib Dem supporter, but I thought they were fresh and interesting compared to Labour and the Tories. But DC has changed the Conservative Party, it is now fresh and interesting, and is certainly winning people over no matter what the polls say.

At the end of the Day the ‘honeymoon’ is over for Brown, he needs to set out a good set of proposals in the Queens Speech at the State Opening of Parliament on the 6th of November. Its a Tuesday so hopefully I will be watching it and will blog about it.
