2009 - General election year??

. Interesting piece on The Spectators Coffee House blog. It argues that the CBI's forecasts of 2.9 million unemployed by 2010 could point towards an early general election. I think there is something in this; Brown could of be in a catch-22, still behind in the polls but facing the prospect of losing momentum, if it looks like things will be bad in 2010 then he may well plump for 2009.

Also, speaking from a purely psychological angle he has had to deal with the consequences of not going to the polls early-on in his premiership. Once bitten, twice shy?? I think it is in Brown's mind as a possibility; especially with Labour recovering in the polls. So, I agree with Ifran Ahmed, we should prepare ourselves for an early election...
