So I've been asleep all afternoon (working tonight) and have just woken up having slept through Michael Martin's statement. However, I see he says he's going on June 21st. That's just over four weeks away. Brown is seeing the Queen today as always on Tuesday and then he's going to hold an impromptu press conference at 17.30.
Why hold a press conference when you know that no one will be interested in what you say other than on the subject of the Speaker? Unless of course you have something much more interesting to say (he's already trailed his Labour Party changes and they're party political anyway)? Just wildly speculating is all. Of course, it would be kamikaze electoral suicide, so its a silly idea really.
Update: Please note I posted this simply because if it happened I would be kicking myself if I hadn't.
