When will the General Election be?

Lots of speculation in the press that Labour may call the next General Election for 25th March due to a narrowing of the opinion polls. Personally, although the Pre-Budget Report didn’t say much, I find it hard to believe that Brown would want to miss an opportunity to determine what the economic strategy going forward would be. All parties will need to reveal their strategy in the election anyway.

Also, although the polls are narrowing it still points to a Labour defeat, so seems a strange decision to go for it, when a bit more time could make it a much closer contest. I still think 6 May is the most likely date.

Still awaiting to see who the Conservative candidate for Bromsgrove will be. Will it be Julie Kirkbride?

Update – Daniel Finkelstein, in the Times today, thinks March is just a rumour.
