Labour announces UK General Election!

Ok, I haven’t got an amazingly exclusive story to break but Gordon Brown kind of does. It was announced today that the pre-election Budget will be on March 16th. Not a significant date you may comment but Blair isn’t likely to announce the election date that week (he’ll want the Budget good news to play out in the news for a few days) that means he will the week after. The following week is the cut off date for announcing a May 5th election.

So there we have a highly speculative but in my view very likely announcement of the UK General Election came today:

"Gordon Brown, the chancellor, will deliver his budget speech on March 16, the Treasury announced today, in what almost certainly will be the last budget before a May general election."
