What do you think?

Asked about reports he was considering a 4 June poll, the PM said: "You can just discount all these stories".

Seems to be quite positive.

let him stew in the mess, libs or tory do not want to inherit the mess labour has got us into as they will have no room to do anything and get fitted up with some of the blame.

"Seems to be quite positive."

So, a June election it is then!

Seriously, I think he should be holding it before then. The Conservatives have been on the back foot with economic policy recently and are losing their opinion poll lead.

By next June, there will be much more visibility of the economic slow down. Labour may get the blame, or be seen to be the party willing to borrow more to ease the plight of those affected.

Who knows which way the great british public will see it.

Its strange how few people criticized labour and GB when the economy appeared to be going well, but the minute it begins to take a downturn (largely due to the world economic situation) suddenly the person, who as chancellor seen 10 plus years of economic growth is now the bad guy. Short memories or what.

It's "blubber" as usual. No "definitive answer", but, "the government are working on it".... can't be bothered to complete the quote.
