Sunday 7 October 2007
It's official. Gordon Brown has no intention of calling a General Election for November 2007, or for the next few months. A reminder - no election is required until June 2010. The fever at Westminster - and amongst the media - can subside.
I shall not therefore be posting articles on the UK election process, for the time being. Instead the 'Westminster' side of this blog will concentrate on practice and procedure in the Commons and Lords - and in the next few weeks on how a session comes to its conclusion. The big date is November 6th, when the Queen opens the new session of Parliament.
That date is also election day in the US - as previous posts have mentioned, much interest will focus on the Virginia Elections. This Tuesday is the last day to register to vote. Candidate lists can be found at http://www.sbe.virginia.gov/cms/Election_Information/Cidate_Lists_Ballot_Issues/Index_new.html
