David Cameron has put his position as Prime Minister at risk by calling a snap general election for late July. His thinking is to capitalise on England's expected World Cup victory.
Important in his calculations was 'getting rid of the wet blanket' which was his description of the Liberal Democrats.
Cameron reminded of the proposed 5 year fixed term parliament said 'It was once said that five days was a long time in politics, so imagine what five years is like.'
Harriet Harman, acting Labour Leader, welcomed the move saying; 'Cameron should remember that although we will win the World Cup during his administration we qualified when Labour was in power. And what about the Eurovision Song Contest, when we came last?'
Cameron has clearly given up on Scotland for any positive election returns as they are rooting for any country playing England.
Nick Clegg, in tears, said he felt the blow was all due to his bad breath. 'Halitosis is no joke, especially if you are kissing someone. I can see David's point of view.'
