Gordon Brown is to step down as leader of the Labour party before their party conference in September.
I've just witnessed a superb rammy (shouting match) between Alistair Campbell and Adam Bolton on Sky. I do so hope they clip it so that those of you who missed it can see Campbell wind up Adam Bolton until he explodes.
Back to the subject. In Gordon Brown's statement he implies his actions will now open the way for formal talks between the Labour party and the Libdems.
This plays well into the hands of Scotland and the SNP. I won't analyse it further - enough bloggers will do so - but I would say to David Cameron let them get on with it. Any government which wishes to ignore the deficit for another 12 months is one which will bring the country to its knees. Ignoring the state our finances are in is not in the interests of the country.
