Two possible blocs
An intriguing interview just now with Peter Mandelson.
He conceded that the country had voted for change and accepted that replacing Gordon Brown was one of a number of options on the morning after the night before.
He is one of a number of cabinet ministers who have been preparing the ground for a Labour/Lib Dem coalition. To turn their dream into reality, they would have to prove to the country that a coalition of two losing parties would be a more stable government than a Conservative minority government.
The BBC projections show the shape of two possible rival power blocs:
Possible total: 320
IND UN: 1
Possible total: 315
SNP + PC: 9
