Will he or won't he go?

I don't stay up for elections these days. The delicious pleasure of the 6 a.m. news bulletin on the radio is too good to miss. And this morning put a huge grin on my face that will take hours to subside.

So, will Brown front it out and stay? Or will we have a second and extraordinary change of horse in mid-stream? Or will he go to the country?

I'd be astonished if he did anything but front it out. The Micawber-esque prospect of 'something turning up', however remote, is actually better for Labour than its poll ratings right now.

He's been sent to Coventry to meet his paymasters. While it would be astonishing if he didn't front it out, as you say, the poisonous fixes we are going to see in these dog days will be very hard to follow and very hard to undo. Cityunslicker posted a scary 'scorched earth' post about 2 months ago.
