    Often read your blog but for once dont get your issue, terrible event of course but just for once good to see anything from government that indicates there is some understanding of the need to get work done.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
