Gordon makes his move

And it's out of Downing Street - by September. The Labour Party will hold a leadership contest. Gordon thereby increases the chances of a workable deal between Labour and the LibDems; he also thereby indirectly puts pressure on the Conservatives to up the ante to the LibDems.

Now, Gordon Brown might not have seen any chance of staying as PM, so has jumped before being pushed. But credit where it's due: he sounded very dignified in his statement. 'Nothing in his life became him like the leaving it'.

More thoughts later.
