Relieved of Westminster

There won't be an election this year.

I know we political hacks are supposed to salivate over every dash (stumble) to the polls but after the saga that was the Welsh general election, and the exhaustion of three weeks of party conferences, I confess I am mightily relieved to have escaped another bout of election fatigue.

I guess voters (or non-voters) who don't share my enthusiasm for politics will be even more thrilled by the news.

That doesn't mean we won't be spending the next few days dissecting what it all means and how much of a hit Gordon Brown will take for flirting with the idea of an unnecessary election before dropping the idea when a few polls started to look ropey.

Perhaps the Prime Minister was put off by all those "DC for PM" posters that greeted him on his photo-opportunity yesterday.

It was flattering to see them but I can assure readers that I have no plans to become Prime Minister and that my priority remains BBC Wales audiences....or did the posters refer to another DC?

I think most ordinary folk are no even moved to comment.
Who really thinks that the majority of voters have an opinion on the pros and cons of will he wont he.
The country can take a deep breath
and ..........relax
