Brown on way to Palace
Gordon Brown is at the Treasury - taking applause from his (former) staff before he leaves for the palace. The warmth of the send off has been commented upon by the Sky reporter.
As we returned to the office we noticed how quiet the corridors of the Palace of Westminster are. Many are following events on the TV screens which each office has.
The ministerial car, parked in Horse Guards Road, is now ready to leave - it's leaving travelling northwards - now in the Mall - and finally it enters the Palace. Britain's short period without a Prime Minister (unlike Monarch's in Britain - who succeed the instant the former Sovereign has passed on - there is a break, albeit it, as today, for a matter of minutes) - is about to end.
