The morning after

Betsan Powys | 06:54 UK time, Friday, 7 May 2010

Overheard on the journey from one studio to the next. "What d'you think? Another General Election?" "Maybe ... but at least that's money saved on a referendum."

Overheard in that studio, Michael Gove discussing the formation of the next government and telling the Today programme that it "now falls to other parties to help David Cameron form that government."

"Minority government" says Jonathan Evans. "Where are we? 307ish? Easy". Ah the balance between riding the momentum and hubris.

And Peter Hain talking about a Labour Liberal Democrat coalition that would get over the 326 seat majority mark thanks to "a wider arrangement" with "other left leaning parties".

Plaid Cymru might have had a bad night but their 3 MPs might yet count in some way in a very, very delicately balanced parliament.
