March or May: Step forward non-decisive Gordon Brown

While Our Dear Leader waits nervously to see if we have come out of recession, there is this important point to add to the speculation about the election date:

Labour strategists fear that the economy could slow again in the first three months of this year, figures that would be published by the Office of National Statistics on 23 April….11 days before a May 6 polling day.

And if Brown does go for 25 March, the election campaign and the vote itself would take place before the clocks change.

Decisions, decisions.  Gordon Brown is hardly a class act in that department.
