Gordon Brown 'stepping down' as Labour leader - with video ~ link ~ This is interesting. If a Conservative - Liberal Democratic deal does not go through today, then this clears the way for a Labour - Liberal Democratic - SNP coalition government. The stumbling block has been Gordon Brown staying on as Prime Minister. In this resignation, Brown would only stay on as PM until September, then a new Labour leader - who would automatically be Prime Minister - would take over. The Lib Dems would get more, it appears under this deal, however, the coalition would be weak and more than likely would not last past a year or so. If the Tories miss forming a government with the Lib Dems the 'knives will be out' for David Cameron within his own party. The selection of who will be the next PM will be most interesting. David Miliband is a strong Zionist who is 'close to the Rothschilds', look for him to become the next Prime Minister if there is a Labour - Lib Dem - SNP - PC deal.

Gordon Brown to quit in bid to woo Lib Dems ~ link ~ Gordon Brown tonight announced he will resign as Labour leader - but offered to stay on as Prime Minister in a potential power-sharing government with the Liberal Democrats until his party has chosen a successor.
Mr Brown said he had asked the Labour Party to set in train the formal mechanism to replace him, after insisting he was confident an administration could be formed with Lib Dem allies to command a majority in the Commons.
The Liberal Democrats thought they should first talk with the Conservatives, he said.
"Mr Clegg has just informed me that while he intends to continue his dialogue that he has begun with the Conservatives, he now wishes also to take forward formal discussions with the Labour Party.
But Mr Brown told reporters the Lib Dems had now asked for official talks, and summoned his Cabinet for 6pm.
As they trooped through the door of No 10, many would be wondering who they would back as the premier's successor - regardless of the outcome of the power-sharing talks.
Deputy leader Harriet Harman, Home Secretary Alan Johnson, Children's Secretary Ed Balls, Foreign Secretary David Miliband and his brother Energy Secretary Ed Miliband have all been tipped as possible replacements.
Meanwhile, Tory MPs were digesting the Prime Minister's announcement as they quizzed Mr Cameron at their private Westminster meeting, on how far he was prepared to go to win Lib Dem support to gain the keys to No 10.
Cabinet minister Douglas Alexander - Labour's general election co-ordinator - said Mr Brown had decided to step down last week.
"He made a judgment shortly after the election results that this was the right course of action," he told Sky News.
"He is very keen to ensure that he meets his constitutional obligations which is to ensure that a government is formed.
"If that government involves the Labour Party then, of course, he would be leading the Labour Party and would be Prime Minister but he has also made clear his determination to assume responsibility for the result on Thursday evening and, in time, to demit office."
He insisted Mr Brown's intervention was "dignified rather than desperate".
"What we have heard from Gordon Brown today was a statesmanlike statement in which he clarified his own position and his desire to facilitate those discussions being taken forward."
As Chief of Clan Alexander, I note that two key players in this high political drama are members of my Clan, Danny Alexander, MP (Nick Clegg's Chief of Staff) and Douglas Alexander, MP (Labour Cabinet Minister) - Stirling.
Lib Dem MPs want more Tory deal details ~ link ~ Lib Dem MPs are seeking more assurances on their key priorities - such as voting reforms - from the Tories, after a two-hour meeting with Nick Clegg.
He was updating his MPs, whose support he will need for any deal, on three days of talks with the Conservatives about forming a government.
Senior Lib Dem David Laws said they had also urged him to "listen" to Labour.
Mr Clegg also held meetings with David Cameron and with Gordon Brown - who is due to make a statement shortly.Chancellor Alistair Darling: Tories and Lib Dems must decide today ~ link ~Concerns over political impasse effecting the stock markets are being used to push Nick Clegg away from the Tories, who are playing 'hardball' on the election reform issue.
He added: "I am not saying that tomorrow's the end of the world but I just make the general observation that there does come a point in any negotiations - either you can do a deal or you can't.
"If there's not a deal, no doubt they will talk to us. The key thing everybody would expect, whether you're a market or more importantly in some ways from the point of view of people at home, we want to see a government in place."
Mr Darling also confirmed he had spoken with his Conservative and Lib Dem counterparts, George Osborne and Vince Cable, before he and other EU finance ministers approved £52bn in stand-by funding to help struggling European economies.
However, he stressed the decision - designed to calm market worries that the Greek debt crisis could spread to other countries - was his alone and he took "responsibility" for it.Scottish National Party calls for a 'progressive alliance' involving Labour - Liberal Democrats - SNP - Plaid Cymru (Welsh nationalists) ~ link ~ An arrangement between Labour and the Lib Dems, SNP and Plaid Cymru could command a majority in the Commons.

Gulf of Mexico mega-disaster - Book of Revelation 8:7 ~ link ~ When the first trumpet is sounded in Revelation 8:7, hail, fire and blood fall upon the Earth, and a third of its surface, along with a third of its trees and all of its grass, is consumed in flame. Upon the sounding of the second, a great, flaming mountain falls into the sea. A third of the oceans turn to blood, a third of the sea creatures are killed and a third of the ships are destroyed. With the third, the star Wormwood falls upon a third of the rivers and springs, poisoning them and the many men who drink from them.
If you look at a photo of the towering drill tower on the BP ship with great flames stories high, when it falls into the ocean, this could be what the text refers to. The oil slick often appears to be reddish brown.
Gulf of Mexico oil spill spreads west towards Texas ~ link ~ link ~ link ~ BP CEO says containment may be weeks, months away.
BP Plc engineers desperately explored options on Sunday to control oil gushing from a ruptured well deep under the Gulf of Mexico after a setback with a huge undersea containment dome fueled fears of a prolonged and growing environmental disaster.
The spill is spreading west, further from Florida but toward the important shipping channels and rich seafood areas of the Louisiana shoreline, where fishing, shrimping and oyster harvesting bans have been widened.New scale of disaster looms in Gulf of Mexico ~ link ~ Concern grew Sunday that the is facing a whole new level of environmental disaster after the best short-term fix for a ran into serious trouble.
BP's giant containment box lay idle on the seabed as engineers furiously tried to figure out how to stop it clogging with ice crystals.
The British energy giant, which owns the lion's share of the leaking oil and has accepted responsibility for the clean-up, has tried to banish the notion that the dome is a "silver bullet" to end the crisis.
But should efforts fail to make the giant funnel system effective, there is no solid plan B to prevent potentially tens of millions of gallons of crude from causing one of the worst ever environmental catastrophes.
Untold damage is already being done by the 3.5 million gallons estimated to be in the sea so far, but the extent of that harm will rise exponentially if the only solution is a relief well that takes months to drill.
The Oil Spill: Round up the usual suspects ~ link ~ link ~ I was told privately late last week that the engineers for the company that built the blowout protector say that it was clearly tampered with. This event, if not stopped soon (and so far we have the usual hot air/bullshit from the government and BP) will help to speed along the operational plan to destroy the American economy (a key part of the global banking cartel's End Game of their Grand Strategy to establish their New World Order/global high-tech police/slave state). - Stirling
With Barack “Spread the Wealth” Obama’s Administration in charge of the government; Janet “The System Worked” Napolitano in charge of Homeland Security, and Eric “A Nation of Cowards” Holder as Attorney General of the United States, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for the truth about what caused the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Was it sabotage? At this point, there’s no telling. What happened aboard the Deepwater Horizon was rare, but not unheard of, so the mundane explanation that it was all an accident, must be counted as one of the chief explanations for what happened.
On the other hand, ruling out sabotage at this point is foolish. There are a number of organizations, companies, and countries which stand to profit handsomely from a major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico—financially and/or ideologically.
Sabotage of BP Deepwater Horizon Drilling Rig ~ link ~ link ~ OK, here goes. I am told that the casing at the sea floor was concreted in-- with 20 feet of concrete-- 24 hours before the event on the rig-- by Halliburton. And that to do that, the blowout preventers (I understand that they use two, like inboard and outboard isolation--I'm not dead certain of that). were closed. That this rig was being prepared to be moved off and a production rig brought in. At that point, they would 'core' the concrete plug, hook up, and the blowout preventers opened and production established.
This means that there was no pathway for nat gas to fill the rig to cause an explosion.
I am told that the blowout preventers are fail-closed hydraulically actuated, with monster actuators. I understand that they essentially function like excess flow check valves. Too much flow starts going through, the valves automatically close without manual intervention.
If you recall, it was reported that the 'acoustically operated blowout preventers' would not respond to a close signal after the explosions and fire on the rig. I am told that this means they have been disabled, one way or another. By explosion, by something. THEY ARE FAIL CLOSED.
I am told that the sea was calm, and that a service boat in near vicinity to the rig heard what they interpreted to be an undersea explosion, and the boat was rocked a short time afterward by a 'surge' on the surface. And then the stuff began to hit the fan. I am led to believe that there are layer upon layer upon layer of redundant fail-safes on this rig, and that the rig is state of the art.
I am told that Boots and Coots, as well as Red Adair's companies (there have been some ownership shuffling in the last years--Halliburton now owns Boots and Coots, as I understand) were point blank refused after the event occurred and these companies offered their services.
And I am told that the word 'bomb' is never, ever used in any respect in the oil b[usi]ness. The guy on the radio interview used the word at least twice. -Mike Kemp
