Earlier this week Iain Dale asked who would be the (political) faces of 2009. My guess is it will pretty much be the same faces we have seen throughout 2008, at least in this country. Brown will continue as Prime Minister, ducking any chances for an early election owing to his fear and loathing of actually putting himself to an electoral test. The Labour party has, for reasons that defy understanding, to keep him on as party leader and I can't see that changing either over 2009. Cameron will continue as Tory leader, going up again in the polls and looking more than ever like a Prime Minister in waiting. And Nick Clegg will continue leading the Liberal Democrats - if you can call what he does as leading. 2008 was a year of big change in the US. And I think 2010 will be a year of change in the UK. But 2009 will be more of the same except - owing to the dying economy - even worse that this year.

Which is, just, *smashing*.
