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.
