    So England now have a government.

    As there has only been one (yep ONE) conservative MP elected in Scotland and eleven Lib Dem, so 41 labour and 6 SNP. So a Con-libdem government should only govern England as even together they have no where near enough to govern Scotland.

    The English have been on tv earlier today saying how much they object to even the thought of Scottish MPs having a say in how to run their country??


    What the "F" do you think has been happening to Scotland for years. now that the boot had even the remotest chance of being on the other foot they all say how terrible it would be. Just goes to show. eh?


    Independance again!!!

    Woohoo

    You can have your referendum as far as im concerned. You lot have made most of your own decisions since devolution, yet still retained the right to vote in England as well. If its good enough for your mob, then its good enough for ours.

    Excellent. For the pommies sake, I hope Cameron stays strong and tells the EU to fek off and says "No, we will not help to bail out Greece or whatever other socialist country falls next. Thank you very much."

    Aww Bower, look on the bright side at least both the Tories will get the blame for the coming inevitable f***** up. Since there will be another election in around 12 months that should be interesting.

    Says he who sits here shivering at the thought.

    Gordon Brown resigns as UK prime minister




    Gordon Brown has been prime minister for less than three years

    Gordon Brown has announced he is resigning as UK prime minister.
    Mr Brown has officially tendered his resignation to the Queen at Buckingham Palace, and recommended Conservative leader David Cameron succeed him.
    Speaking alongside his wife Sarah outside No 10 Downing Street, he said the job had been "a privilege" and wished his successor well.
    His decision comes as the Tories and Liberal Democrats are poised to agree a deal to form a government.
    Mr Brown said he had taken the decision to resign after concluding he would not be able to form a government after days of talks between the parties following Thursday's inconclusive election result.
    'Privilege to serve'
    In an emotional farewell speech outside No 10, Mr Brown said he had "loved the job" and it had been "a privilege to serve".
    I wish the next prime minister well as he makes the important choices for the future


    Gordon Brown

    "I loved the job for its potential to make this country I love fairer, more tolerant, more green, more democratic, more prosperous and more just - truly a greater Britain.
    "In the face of many years, challenges up to and including the global financial meltdown, I have always tried to serve, to do my best in the interests of Britain, its values and its people."
    David Cameron is expected to go to Buckingham Palace later on Tuesday to accept the Queen's invitation to form a government.
    Anticipating that, Mr Brown said: "I wish the next prime minister well as he makes the important choices for the future."
    His two young sons joined him and wife Sarah for his brief statement which ended with the words: "Thank you and goodbye."
    Failed talks
    Mr Brown also said he would stand down as Labour leader with immediate effect.
    Mr Brown succeeded Tony Blair as prime minister in June 2007 after spending ten years as chancellor of the exchequer.
    His resignation follows Thursday's general election in which no party won an overall majority but the Conservatives won the most seats and votes.
    Both Labour and the Tories have since been trying to persuade the Lib Dems to join them in a coalition government to run the country.
    Mr Brown had previously said he would resign as Labour leader, but stay on as prime minister until September, if Labour could agree a deal with the Lib Dems.
    But after this possibility ended, the BBC's Political Editor Nick Robinson said Mr Brown decided he could not form a government and should stand down.
    Nick Robinson said Mr Brown had made his announcement before the Conservatives and Lib Dems had formally announced they would be combining to form a government.
    Before making his announcement, Mr Brown consulted with his wife Sarah and close colleagues including Lord Mandelson, Douglas Alexander, Ed Balls and Ed Miliband.
    Mr Brown also spoke to former prime minister Tony Blair by phone.
    Labour's ruling National Executive Committee has indicated it wants Mr Brown's successor as leader to be chosen as soon as possible, possibly by the end of July.
