Cameron demands snap election

Gordon Brown will not have an automatic mandate.

Conservative Party leader David Cameron has today called upon Gordon Brown to call a quick general election after Tony Blair eventually decides to vacate 10 Downing Street. In an interview with Classic FM "Big Dave" said:

"Tony Blair said at the last election he would serve a full term, so when he goes, no subsequent Labour prime minister can really in their heart claim to have a mandate from the British people.So it would be right actually to hold a general election as soon as is reasonably possible, because the British people thought they were electing Tony Blair.

He's off. Someone new is coming. They need a mandate."

Of course, if Gordon Brown were to pander to Cameron's wishes, it would put South Shields Conservative Association into a full scale panic. They have yet to select a PPC (prospective parliamentary candidate) to oppose David Miliband, and there are precious few signs of them starting the necessary procedures.

Better hurry up, 'A' - listers are becoming thin on the ground!
