Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So will we see a change of leaders in both two main parties after tonight?

Well, considering Cameron will probably be burned in front of Parliament if this vote doesn't pull up for them....

Did you see that Oxbridge twit raving about how Cameron was his best pupil evah and is a model of noble and enduring statesmanly calmness and poise?

Why doesn't the BBC get Satan for its next election special - it couldn't possibly make the coverage any more obviously biased.

Oh, yes, graduated with an outstanding degree.  Such a smart boy.

I do get the sense that the talking heads sense all is not well for the Torytubbies.

Is there someone I can pay to see this live?

I think Brown is gone.  One way or the other he will either go or be pushed.

Cameron will hang around if only because he's their only hope of forming a government.  Afterwards, I don't think much of his chances.  The bottom line is they had a massive lead only 2 months ago and now they're scrambling to cobble a minority or coalition governing majority.  

While I admit total ignorance about the internals of the Lib/Dems it must be observed Clegg did them proud during the debate.  It's not his fault they couldn't seal the deal.

@Charonqc I've just been talking to a mate of mine... Hugh Bris.... he thinks there could be three leaders resigning tomorrow.... true story!

No idea how to evaluate that.

Easy to sack Brown, he "lost" a massive number of seats bequeathed to him by his good mate Blair ... indeed, if the LD are in a position to go into coalition with Labor, it could only be at the cost of Brown stepping down as leader.

Impossible to sack Cameron, he just picked up a massive number of seats.

I'd think the LD's 'd be unlikely to sack Clegg, he's only lost big relative to hopes that were raised after his first few weeks of campaigning.

Not sacking Cameron is fine - he's mediocre enough to repeat this performance if there's a rematch.

The question for Labour is who takes Gordo's place.
