Squatter hangs on

The brazen attempt by Gordon Brown to cling on as the No10 squatter is indefensible in the aftermath of an election where Labour suffered its worst defeat since 1931. This is the man whose party has been trying to oust him for two years and who was rejected by Nick Clegg as a potential partner even before the election. There is no doubting the urgent need to form a government that can take decisive action to provide stability and undo some of the damage of Brown’s hubristic policies. Cameron could offer the Lib Dems a “confidence-and-supply agreement” where they abstain on legislation tackling the deficit but retain a free vote elsewhere. Certainly, for Clegg to row back on his pre-election stance would surely cost him dear and he needs to support the Tories to prove his party has finally grown up.
