The Blair announcement

By Michael J.W. Stickings

British Prime Minister Tony Blair will "make an announcement" today regarding his future plans (i.e., resignation and departure date), the BBC is reporting (as are many others). He "will tell Cabinet colleagues of his intentions [this] morning, before making his plans public in a speech in his Sedgefield constituency".

Which means that the Gordon Brown era will soon be upon us.

With no Cabinet-level challenge for the leadership, and only a backbench challenge if any at all, his "coronation" is all but assured.

Update: Well, it's done.
