+ + + Brown Resigns + + +

Puts wheels in motion for Labour leadership election.

UPDATE : Will be gone by conference. Offers the Lib Dems a chance to form coalition with him until the autumn, when he will be replaced by victor of Labour leadership contest. Clegg has requested formal talks. Quite the spanner in the works.

UPDATE II : And the Pound crashes in reaction…

    Good riddance. But he still intends to ‘oversee the recovery’. And talk to the Lib Dems. So they can burn together. Result!

    He’s resigned as labour leader sort of..

    Far too many ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’. Brows says he will only go if there is a ‘progressive coalition’ (Helena Kennedy must be wetting her knickers over that!), and then, only after about six months.

    If Clegg does not take up the offer of coalition then Brown may then decide to stay anyway.

    I see this as Brown trying to put his usual spanner in the works.

    The stage is set now for Cameron to either, go it alone in a minority government, or to let Brown have his PG – and then bring him down with a confidence (lack of) vote.

    The whole thing stinks and Cameron has to say to the Queen he will go it alone – or will the last Englishman left in the country turn out the lights when we self-destruct with these absurd tinkering by Brown to keep his cronnies in power.

    Wonderful – the one time I actually DON’T want him to resign (because his apparent desperation to stay in Number 10 drives the Lib Dems towards the Conservatives with the potential of forming a majority coalition), and the bastard actually does it.

    So now the Lib Dems are going to talk to Labour to see what they’ve got to offer. Which leaves the Conservatives no choice but to give further ground, in order to prevent the awful prospect of a ‘rainbow/traffic lights/bunch of election-losing hoons’ coalition.

    The forces of the left are deliberately conspiring to keep the most popular political party in Britain out of government. If this had happened if Labour had been the largest party, I have the distinct feeling that the gang of miscreant brownshirt thugs they jokingly call ‘activists’ would be staging riots all over the place, which the BBC would obligingly splatter all over the news.

    If you think Heath was bitter, you ain’t see nothing yet. Brown will now live out his days a bitter, twisted creature, being eaten away inside by fury at the voters not recognising his genius.

    Wow, you’re not going to believe this!!! The Balls/Whelan speech read by Brown was not what Mandelson and Campbell had approved.!!

    It’s now open warfare in No10. Gordon has opened the door to negotiations but it’s Balls who benefits and not Miliband as Mandelson and Campbell demanded.

    There is now going to be the biggest blood-letting ever seen in the Labour party. Mandelson is beside himself with rage apparently and Campbell is arranging a massive rapid rebuttal for tonight’s news programmes.

    Surely the “triple lock” applies as much to a deal with Labour as with the Tories.

    While the majority might go for a deal with Labour, it will have serious consequences for the LibDems and a rational minority can block it.

    In additioan, there is no guarantee that what Labour offers will be delivered. Many Labour MP’s are opposed to PR, and it won’t take many to block a vote – and surely it won’t be whipped.

    If the hair shirt purists and rejectionists go for a deal with Labour, the Tories will be working overtime to bring it down. If the do this before either the PR vote or the referendum on PR the LibDems are going to be left out in a very, very cold place.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    Woah! Clegg has to talk to Labour to satisfy the loony left of the party, knowing full well that the bulk of the LibDems will never forgive him if he prostitutes himself to Labour. More importantly, neither will the electorate. Don’t write off the LibCon pact just yet.
    The life of the Rainbow Coalition will be measured in months, which gives the Conservatives time to tweak their Manifesto fairly severely and find the 5% extra they need for a comfortable majority. Also, “A” listing will be a dead duck. Local associations will find their own candidates and get the vote out.
    If Brown intends to hang on till the Autumn, bear in mind that his control system is still in place. Brown is quite capable of reversing his decision and bullying himself back into power, the intention of standing down conveniently forgotten when and if Clegg falls for the confidence trick. Watch for the leadership election being slowed down and a startlingly long time allowed for the candidates list to close.
    Personally, I’ll never believe that Brown has gone until I see and touch the body.

    Even if a Lib/Lab/Bitsandbats alliance came about (no guarantee – they haven’t started formal talks yet), it wouldn’t last long. The economic pressures are too severe for it to survive long with virtually no majority, and the electorate won’t like a government with an unelected PM and two minority parties, judged by both seats and votes.

    If it did happen, the next election, which would almost inevitably be quite soon, would be a Conservative landslide. The Lib Dems would be all but wiped out, and Labour would probably lose votes and seats.

    why can’t we try this?

    in the situation where we have no overall majority then the following works:

    NI + 1 vote no matter how many seats
    Wales = 1 vote as above
    Scotland = 2 votes as above

    these are based on people who live there, but we could do it this way

    NI= -10 seats based on benefits
    Wales = -10 seats based on benefits
    Scotland = -60 seats based on benefits

    or we could just discount the outlying areas and let the votes in the core count….

    unless you support and field candidates throughout the whole of the UK then your seats or votes do not count on a balanced or hung parliament ballot.

    Why would it mean another unelected prime minister? Apart from Brown that is. The calculation would be to elect a new Labour leader and then go to the country in the full knowledge that the leader in question isn’t Brown. Their polling would have told them that they lost X votes/seats because people thought Brown was a *unt and therefore they will gain X votes/seats because their new leader isn’t (not necessarily true of course).

    Meanwhile Cameron would have to decide at what point to vote them down. He would of course take the blame if the government fell because of a Tory vote and could expect a kicking at the polls.

    But at least we now know why we don’t want PR in this country: most Liberal Democrats are closet socialists and Clegg is a weasel holding this country to ransom, with the smallest proportion of the vote gained by any of the 3 main parties. So much for Guido’s anti-Labour analysis a few days ago.

    I think a lot of people have underestimated how close the tories and liberals have become over the last 5 years. Both are lead by pragmatists who should be able to do a deal that is in the best interests of the country, if not their own parties.

    IF they work together well in practice, and have a secure Government over the next two years, then who is to say that they will not continue to do so if necessary after any subsequent election.

    Indeed. I am not against electoral reform, so long as that reform produces an improvement in democracy in practice.

    DAVID CAMERON was deprived of a Commons majority by failing to secure the votes of just 16,000 people, according to an expert analysis of election results.

    The findings by Colin Rallings and Michael Thrasher reveal that the Tories came tantalisingly close to securing a clean victory at the polls.

    “Cameron came so near and yet so far,” write the directors of the elections centre at Plymouth University. “Just 16,000 extra votes for the Tories, distributed in the 19 constituencies in which the party came closest to winning, would have spared us a weekend of negotiation and speculation.”

    If we get a Lib-Lab coalition and an unelected Labour PM AGAIN, we should take to the streets. The Tories got 2m votes more than Labour. They have the right to form the government. Labour can fuck off.

    Hello ? Are you guys reading this???
    Are you aware that you just got played, as they say in America?

    The only reason why the Conservatives don’t have a majority now is because of Labour’s meddling & rigging of the system over the last few years. Labour won more seats with LESS of a percentage of the popular vote in 2005! This time round, the Tories won 36% of the vote, yet ended up with fewer seats than needed to get an outright majority. What an absolute scandal!
    So stop all this rubbish about how “no one has a majority, so Labour have just as much moral authority to rule as anyone else” !! You rigged the system, and yet you still managed to get your arses kicked in the election, and now you’re trying to steal the victory.

    LibDems are 2nd in 241 seats. Of this 241 they are second to Tories in 166 seats – q.e.d. if they do a deal with the Tories then there is no LibDem alternative voice there – so the deal wont happen.

    Tories are a MINORITY REGIONAL party bit like the SNP – except with nae mandate to govern. I hear Alex Salmon is offering Dave some lessons on how to put together a minority government…….

    So if you want to get into power again ye’ll need to get rid of us Jocks and our 41 Labour, 11 Liberal and 6 SNP seats. Then you might get a turn in number 10 – if the LibDems haven’t sewn it up by then.

    I told you, I told you, I fucking told you all – AV. It’s all about AV. For months the libdems and labour have been changing their language, they stopped talking about proportional representationa dn started talking about “fair votes”. I watched their language and could *see* that they were conspiring together, no matter the pretence at combat. These motherfuckers are stealing this election, and every subsequent one. It is happening now. It is happening in front of our eyes. The scum at the BBC are talking about “proportional voting”, and “electoral reform” when what is being plotted is an imposed system that will see labour remain in power forever.

    For fucking ever. Getting it? Can you see what it is yet?

    This is how it looks when a country slides into fascism – this is what you read in the papers and see on the telly. This is the feeling your have in your guts when you’re wondering if you could have done something earlier, when you wonder what you can do today. This is the moment when you realise all the piddling party bullshit was a smokescreen, a scam, when behind the scenes, for decades, the plans were being hatched.

    Did you ever wonder? If you’re a bright inquisitive person you probably have. Did you ever wonder what it was like in Germany, as the slide took hold, as the tipping point was reached? Well now you know. The collusion for personal gain of the political classes, the betrayal of principles and good sense, the rush, the momentum, the poisonous naked lust for power.

    I think it’s time…

    Not true – all the leaders (even Salmond) have acknowledged that they did not get what they want from the election. Whether they should remain leaders of their respective parties is a question all of them need to consider when we know who is forming a government. If the Tories are in opposition there will definitely be some calling for Dave to go. It’s worth noting that he only lost because of the constituency boundaries – if you reverse the vote share percentages for Tories and Labour then Labour would have 60+ majority and would be proclaiming the result as a rock solid mandate. And before you say we support FPTP so can’t complain – we don’t support FPTP with the boundaries skewed in favour of Labour. On any objective analysis the Tories did the best both in terms of the actual result and direction of travel from last time.

    He said it was urgent that country has a new and stable government and that the Lib Dems now had a choice:

    1.To go in with the Lab Party in a governemnt that would not be stable or secure (relying on minor parties for a majority), that would be headed by a second unelected PM in a row (which would be unaccepatable to the maj of people) and whcih would impose voting reform without a consutlation;

    or
    2.To continue talks with the Conservatives and make a coalition in a government that would have a stable and secure majority (of 76), an elected PM in David Cameron who obtained most votes and seats at the election, and which would say the voting system should be subject to a referendum.
    He said that everybody would be at liberty to campaign as they wished in a referendum on AV.

    Perhaps he realised from the GE results that the LibDems are not the force that they threatened to be.

    How would an approval to AV pan out given the above?

    This should be a great news day for the Conservatives, for Right-thinking people in general and Britain in the long term. Gordon Brown, the second worst Prime Minister in living memory (after Edward Heath) has finally announce he will resign…. eventually. This is a clear case of the LibDems dictating Government policy, and Gordon Brown falling (or being pushed by Mandelson) onto his rusty sword. If the Liberal Democrats agree to prop up this failed Labour Government, it would allow the Millibands or Balls to become the second unelected Prime Minister in a row.
    If the Tories do not now form a coalition, it would leave them to free to keep to the moral high ground in opposition, keeping their powder dry for a future election in six to twelve months. It will also mean they would not need to keep begging for help from the discredited LibDems allies. The Tories can then adopt a truly patriotic, Conservative manifesto, whilst the internal party forces of true conservatism can then steer the Cameron Shadow Cabinet to a position of clear blue water. This Lib-Lab-Nationalist Coalition of Losers will be like herding cats, and will be rightly critiqued by the markets. The Nationalists will demand more funds with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – raising English anger into a new fury. The Losers Coalition will also have to deal with the tax rises, spending cuts and growing number of strikes (Labour’s own Unite Union bringing misery to thousands of British holidaymakers for a start). The Tories can return in six months, and if under a hastily installed PR system , can do so with tacit support of new UKIP MPs!!
    The other bit of good news was the Eurozone bail-out, but not for the reasons you may think. I am opposed to the Euro and the EU project tooth and nail! I want it to collapse, and not threaten our freedom and democracy ever again, and I think the Eurozone has put all its chips on black, and it’s come up red! The $1 trillion dollar bail out is truly staggering. The Euro-ministers have thrown in the proverbial kitchen sink (and I don’t understand they can afford that) yet this will still not be enough to cover an Italian default, but only Greece, Portugal, Spain and maybe Ireland. After that, they have nothing left in the tank, and the bail-out may still fail. The agreement also has to be approved by all Eurozone Governments, and this may even prove to be difficult to do so in the paymaster German parliament, now that Angela Merkel has lost her majority today. The Germans are spitting feathers over this, and are demanding draconian measures on the Club Med defaulters. Harsh fiscal measures will bring the Greeks, Portuguese and Spanish people out on the streets, with revolution a potential. The alternative is to let the profligate Club Med governments to continue frittering away billions to go bankrupt or be expelled from the eurozone. Either way, a big EuroCrunch is coming! Today’s market bounce will also hinder German exports, as the euro is starting to climb in value again. We cannot trust the EU’s fiscal management either, as the ECB is breaking its own rules, and will now buy Greek government bonds. How can we trust them when they don’t even stick to their own rules. Thanks to our surrender-monkey government, even though we are thankfully not in the eurozone, we are still being stung for £8 billion of bail-out. How many cancer drugs would that pay for here?
    Finally, if Nick Clegg and the LibDems are so keen on a fair proportional representation electoral system, why are they also so enthusiastic to happily hand over our legislative process to majority voting in the EU Parliament, removing any control the British people have over their own destiny!

    Painful as it may be for us economically, I am beginning to think that a coalition of the losers, fraying round the edges through the summer, another unelected labour leader in the Autumn when the coalition will probably by then, be falling apart in acrimony, might be a good thing. Election forced within the next couple of years.

    The electorate will have learnt its lesson by then and both labour and the libdems will be even more hated and haemorraging votes faster than a severed artery!!

    So true. I could not understand Cameron’s approach. He should have said “I want to thank Nick Clegg for sticking to what he said during the campaign and offering to talk to us first. However, we have to do things according to the constitution. As the serving Prime minister Gordon Brown must determine if he can still command a majority in Parliament. If he can, his government will continue. If not he must resign. If the Queen then asks me to try to form a Government I look forward to productive discussions with Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats.” That way he would not have been talking to Clegg at all until Brown was in opposition and would have the option of leading a minority government as he would already be PM. It could have gone the other way of course – but then it looks like it could anyway.

    When I grew up, Northern Ireland had just 12 MPs in very large constituencies. The reason, I believe, was that Stormont wielded the power, and equal representation at Westminster was not required. Numbers were increased after abolition of Stormont, but never reduced when power was agian devolved. No attempt has been made to reduce the number of Westminster MPs from Scotand after devolution (obviously). Even if there was no Edinburgh Parliament there would still be too many Scottish MPs (though geograpphy of the far flung Highland and Islands is some excuse). The situation in Wales is not quite so acute, as the Assembly has less power, and the Welsh are not quite so one-eyed. But now we seem to have the prospect of the UK being ruled by a superfluity of Labour Scottish MPs, aided and abetted by, ye gods, the SNP who’s ultimate aim is the destruction of the UK. At least Sinn Fein has the grace not to take up its seats. Is this the final, belated, revenge fro the Act of Union 1707?

If he wanted to he could wait until Parliament returns and let the opposition pass a vote of confidence but that would be pointless. In this case, his opponents (the Tories) do NOT have a majority.

    Like fuck!

    However, a little wrinkle for those who like constitutional niceties: In normal times, Brown, as an ex-PM would expect to be elevated to the HoL – where he can join his friend Mandelson. However, the convention is that a PM is not elevated ahead of his predecessor, in this case Blair.

    So, poetic justice, twice over. Blair held Brown back from being PM and now could hold him back from being in the Lords. Oh joy!

    I can hardly believe what is emerging tonight.

    The tories have offered the libdems a referendum on AV but gordon has gone further and said he will give them PR , no referendum, just simply imposed on the electorate along with labour’s second unelected leader due in the autumn.

    Frankly this a barefaced, shameless.attempt at a Coup D’etat of the government by the labour party which has just lost the election as badly as Michael Foot did!!

    I never thought in all my days I would see such a thing here!

    Is there no-one that can stop them??!

    Hmmm….not sure where my last post ended up…habe we exhausted your HD Guido? :)

    Essentially, I was amusing myself with the thought that, constitutionally, Brown, as ex-PM, could expect to be elevated to and join his good friend Mandelson in the HoL. However, convention dictates (not the Brown ever pays attention to that) that an ex-PM is not elevated to the Lords ahead of his predecessor.

    So Blair, having stood in the way of Brown becoming PM fr ten years could equally be the cause of Brown failing to take ermine.

    Exceeding joy!
