    Labour would have to play its cards very very well to make proper gains though. I can only speak for the odd poll and what I see in the media, which given recent events is hardly a great indicator but I can't see Miliband commanding huge support across the country.
    Possibly, which is why I said it would be a coalition government again. This time, however, I think it would be a more progressive one. Possibly even involving the smaller parties such as Plaid, the SNP, and the Greens.

    In the immediate term, the person who takes over would be Nick Clegg since he is the deputy prime minister. He would probably have to call an election since he cannot be said to command the confidence of the House in that circumstance. The Tories would have to choose a new leader and it's possible we end up with a new coalition government but a Lib-Lab one. If Cameron is found to be complicit by proxy in his employment of Coulson then the Tories would be seriously compromised.
    I can't see Clegg becoming interim PM. Most likely, Cameron would advise the Queen to appoint William Hague as PM.

    He could do that, though that would counter the purpose of having the office of Deputy PM. Moreover, I'm not sure that Hague would wish to be the one standing going "eh yeah, we're having an election cos we brought lying, cheating scumbags in t'Dahnin' Street".

    But they wouldn't command a majority. What's your answer to that?

    If Cameron left, that doesn't mean an election would have to be called. The Lib Dems will gain nothing from forcing an election, and the Tories will lose out also. If such a situation were to occur, the Tories would get a new leader who would then take over as PM. It may even be the case that the Tories get a new leader before Cameron resigns (he gives them time to find one). But it seems unlikely no? I can't picture Cameron resigning.

    He did say they'd have to call another election.

    Of which he predicts the result would be lib-lab.

    I can tbh. It would take a few more links to be established though. Who do you think should/would take over?

    It does yeah, but the office is essentially pointless anyway.

    Moreover, I'm not sure that Hague would wish to be the one standing going "eh yeah, we're having an election cos we brought lying, cheating scumbags in t'Dahnin' Street".
    Perhaps not, but I reckon he's their best chance if there's a snap election.

    ohn Whittingdale, the Tory chair of the committee, was advised by the parliamentary authorities that he could refer the matter to the Commons if the Murdochs failed to accept the summons to appear on Tuesday. MPs could then vote to summon them to the bar of the Commons – the strip on the floor of the house marking the end of the standing section for MPs – where they could have been informed of their punishment. This could have included admonishment, a fine or imprisonment, possibly in a cell under Big Ben.

    Parliament got medieval on Murdoch

    Not sure - if I am honest, I don't particularly think any of the cabinet would be any good...

    You guys really think this would undermine Cameron so much he would have to resign? I don't see it at this stage.

    As for potential leader, I would like William Hague, except him being a previous leader probably undermines him. There's nobody else I think would be suitable.

    I'm sure we can all agree, a collapse of the government would be terrible in general, even for Labour who could potentially benefit.

    The order includes 12 cans of beans - the most it will let me order for some reason.
