Election speculation

Not really by way of prediction - my guess on the General Election date really is as speculative and ill-informed as anyone else - but three small notes from inside Glasgow City Council.

1) Glasgow City Council's budget meeting has been brought forward by two weeks to the 28th of January. Last year's meeting was on the 12th of February. I understand a few other Councils are also going early.

2) the
online Council diary stops on the 19th of February. Quite odd, as it would usually run right through until summer recess.

3) Jim Murphy was in the City Chambers, monopolising the largest Committee Room all of Thursday morning. According to Council staff, he pops in quite regularly, but it makes me wonder if they're getting instructions on more pressing matters.

Anyway, this idle chatter doesn't amount to terribly much, unless there is a March election. In which case, I claim it as a scoop!

Not so sure about it being a scoop - I've seen 25th March touted as the speculative date on one or two other blogs - but you've certainly unearthed a few more clues here. I wonder what the odds are at the bookies...?

I wouldn't be putting bets on it, but it'd be nice to get it over with ;-)
