“These go to eleven.”
The volume control on videos on the BBC News website di, in fact, go to eleven.
Colo(u)r me amused. :D
And watching tonight’s returns. Should be interesting, especially if Labour polls third nationally and still remains official opposition. If that happens — still a possibility but it’s so hard to say with all the new and undecided voters — one hopes they’ll have the decency to offer a coalition with the LibDems, and specifically with the LD leader Clegg as PM.
The Tories will be hard pressed to claim a mandate when nearly some 60% of the nation is voting for the left and center-left parties (well, okay, center and center left — Blair dragged Labour far right of their historical roots). If it’s hung, Cameron and the Tories can’t even claim a victory without threatening the Queen’s impartiality; Brown as standing PM has first dibs on forming a government.
Well, the price of that is electoral reform, if they want Clegg and the Liberal Democrats. He certainly can’t form a Grand Coalition with the Conservatives without surrendering the premiership. And it doesn’t look like they’ll be close enough to cobble something together with SNP or Plaid Cymry or any of the other minor parties.
So the question Labour has to face is what is more important: Gordon Brown remaining PM, or Labour having a seat at the table?
