Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Scotland and Wales you can pretty much forget the Tories.

But I'm 290 seats bid 310 seats offered for the Tories, I think....

The key point to me is if Labour and Lib Dem between them reach a majority (326) of seats and also a majority of the popular vote.

If they get both, then I reckon Brown might just cut a deal with Clegg.

Moreover, he'll do it quickly - maybe even tonight and tomorrow - before the Tories can parachute in and do what Salmond did in Scotland by trumpeting the 'win' all over the Press.

He could even square the SNP and Plaid Cymru if necessary by giving them the Scottish and Welsh Secretary jobs....

Interesting times.
