Let's now swoop in the Skycopter from Downing Street to the majestic setting of Ramsgate's Albion House, where the country's other big political battle has been going on, the one to elect a new mayor of our teeny-tiny council.
And the news just in is that the current incumbent, caff-crushing, car-crushing Councillor Green is coming out on the steps to make a statement... he's looking composed... is he about to announce his resignation and bury his sobbing head in the bosom of his lovely wife, Dame Elizabeth? No, no, in fact he's been re-elected! Hurrah!
And there, waving by his side is the independent Tory Councillor Walph 'Mr Wamsgate' Hoult, who remains as deputy mayor, a sort of LabCon coalition if you like. And, er, the mayor tells me that nothing else has changed. Apart from an events committee being set up.
So there you have it ladies and gentlemen, another momentous day in British politics, and I don't think I'm exagerating when I say this ushers in a similar era to the last one, after which everything will pretty much stay the same. God bless the Queen.
