Signs are we might be heading for an early poll

What today’s polls say to me is “early election”. If Brown keeps this up into the recess, his honeymoon will stretch through the summer. Remember, the Tories need a ten-point lead to win an overall majority. I’ve been amazed how much ammunition Brown is discharging. He could have announced Super Casinos in the autumn. He seems to be in a sprint, not a marathon. Perhaps because he knows the finish line of this parliament is not too far away.
