    No one but the Prime Minister and the Queen have the ability to call a general election. It wouldn't make a difference how much 'calling' the tories do.

    Really care to debate this one fact in light of this story the Oil part of this story and what was just broke on BBC1 about the fact that Mr. Brown didn't want to go back and talk to Libya about Comp for IRA Vics. I can see him having no choice but call for a special election.

    The Queen will not let this stand in the past she has quitely worked behind the scene to get special election call if she feels that what is going on is going ot do more harm to the Country. Your not old enough to recall the race riots of the 70s.

    No way will Brown call a special election.

    Gordon has waited 10 years for the reigns of power and to become Prime Minister working in the background to chuck out Blair. He will not give it up a day before he has to.

    The Queen will not intervene. She takes no political stance and her using her power will put the monarchy in danger.

    I think Conservatives winning will increase Scotland's goal for independence and SNP will gain as a result

    About 9 months. Thats plenty of time for those politicians to start kissing the ass of those who do not really pay attention to politics. Plenty of time for those with short attention spans to forget about it or those with short term memory to stop caring and definitely enough time for another disaster or controversy to happen that will divert everyone's attention away. . If they loose it won't be by a wide margin.

    And no short term memory loss on this election, i have a feeling Labour will be by the end of the night on the brink of extinction.
    Labour is to us what Bush was to you.
    Bush was elected twice to office and finished his terms, he probably isn't a good example to use.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    No the Queen will step in like she did in the 70s if she needs to it really all depends on what happen over here in the United State and enlight of what just came out about the IRA. I could see a very quick firestorm happen around Mr. Brown and forcing him to step down and call special elections.

    Not Labour.
    You do not understand.
    It is impossible for Labour to regain 40 points to be even with the Conservatives right now.

    We have alot to be angry about and it will all come out in the next election.
    Iraq, Afghanistan - Our soldiers and lack of funding (Labour is withholding funds to pay for equipment and then lie about it), Gurkhas, loss of liberty, the increased police state we have become, ID cards, libya, the extradition of a british citizen, torture by M15, MP expenses, Lisbon treaty and not giving us a vote and as a result signing away our soverignty, Lockerbie, losing our data on trains.

    I will not forget any of this and neither will anyone i know. I will vote against my MP for her expenses, the little bitch and her stealing from the public.

    And Labour will lose by a bigger landslide than Conservatives lost under if the polls are to be believed.

    Tory landslide predicted at next election in crucial Sun poll | The Sun |News

    The exclusive YouGov survey, the most crucial for five years, shows the Tories 14 points up on Labour.

    If repeated at an election next May, that would give Mr Cameron 42 per cent of the vote with Labour trailing on 28 and the Lib Dems on 17.

    And the Tories would comfortably bring 13 years of New Labour rule to an end.

    The survey is particularly significant as every August poll carried out before a spring election since 1996 has predicted the result to within one per cent.

    It shows 38 per cent of voters believe Mr Cameron would make the best PM compared to just 19 per cent for Mr Brown.

    Six out of ten voters say Mr Brown - also on the rack over the release of the Lockerbie bomber - is doing fairly or very badly in No10.
    Yes but Bush was elected under .... special circumstances. I mean, it is unheard of - A judiciary deciding who heads the executive in UK.

    Yes but she is not needed yet.
    She has no real reason to call a election.

    Parliament is in recess right now so they are not doing as much damage.

    Yes she can but she will not.

    The established convention is that the Government decides when Parliament returns and the Queen's role is to perform the state opening of Parliament and read the Governments speech.
    If you watch the state opening you will see through it parts where the House of Commons establishes its importance as the elected house when it approaches the HOL and Queen. No Monarch has stepped foot in the HOC since Charles the 1st.
