Will he or won't he?

I missed Marr on GB (and on DC) but I would bet that the PM's fingernails are bitten to the quick as he dithers over whether to call an election in March. Unemployment is 6.5% and rising, he has had an amazing rebound in popularity and he would be a fool to wait until 2010 when his star will have fallen again. I wonder which thought is more galling for him: that DC could be PM or that TB could be EU president? The double whammy would be the grand finale for the fingernails.

Har har! Yes you are right about the fingernails.
I don't think it will matter when the elction is, Brown will be out. Politicalbetting has a good sentence this morning ( roughly) Brown fares worse than Cameron in adversity. I would prefer someone who is resilient in the face of problems and singleminded. Brown is clearly a coward ( MacCavity) and all over the place in terms of policy.
