Gordon Brown, UK Prime Minister, has just announced he is "stepping down" as leader of the Labour party, as his party opens formal talks with the Lib Dems about forming a government.
Gordon declared the national interest could be best served by a coalition between Lib Dems and Labour and that he would "discharge that duty to form that government."
Last Thursday's results of a hung parliament has made the future of British politics look very bleak indeed.
The last few days, the media have reported Tory and Lib Dem's in talks to form a government together.
However, with Gordon Brown's announcement this has completely changed the dynamics. It's a positive step to smmooth the way of a deal between Labour and the Lib Dems for form a government. And you can bet what party is absolutely fuming - you guessed it, Conservatives!
