"The Truth"

Betsan Powys | 16:42 UK time, Tuesday, 2 June 2009

Do MPs really, really want an early election?

If they do, the good news for them is that they'll get a chance next week to vote in favour of dissolving parliament.

Plaid Cymru and the SNP have decided to use their allotted time in parliament next Wednesday to force a dissolution debate and attempt to force the hand of David Cameron and Nick Clegg who've been saying they really, really want an early election ... and early bath for quite a few.

As it happens a BBC team has been disturbing sun-worshippers in Cardiff Bay this afternoon, asking whether they want a chance to vote soon. The response? Yes, they do, overwhelmingly, though the response that came in the form of a song by rap artist "The Truth" will probably prove just a bit too long for the 10 o'clock news to include.
