There is a theory doing the rounds that says Gordon could delay an election until 2013. It rests on the discovery that whilst the current Parliament must expire after 5 years, there is nothing to say that he has to call a General Election immediately. The only (legal) limit is that he has to do so within 3 years. Political Betting found it, and it has been picked up by the Spectator and by Mark Reckons.
I think I can sum up my reaction to that possibility in two words - "Riots", and "Streets"
