No rejection; no acceptance
Westminster Hall: All the signs are that there is as yet still no deal between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives. Nick Clegg and his negotiating team have been briefing their parliamentary colleagues for almost an hour and a half already. The word I hear is that, though there has been no outright rejection, there has also been no acceptance either.
Meantime, Gordon Brown is preparing to make a statement in response to the final outcome of this meeting, which he may use to set out an alternative way forward. The case I think he will present - if he gets the chance - is a promise to help lead European efforts to stabilise the economy and moves towards fundamental political reform before standing aside for a new leader and new prime minister.
