Not quite a whitewash but almost!
I'm just back from flying around in some rather miserable conditions - I heard one poor chap putting down in a field on the way home - and hear that Thanet is now almost uniformly blue in terms of the elections results, with only one 'Green' survivor, (Mrs Elizabeth) who beat Mike Taylor in Ramsgate.
It's possibly the biggest single swing in electoral history and Labour have now lost 'all' their counties across the nation. Defending 500 seats, they've reportedly lost 300!
I also hear that Geoff Hoon has also quit the Cabinet this evening, joining, Blears, Smith and Purnell. Caroline Flint, has done a complete 'Volte face' since announcing her undying support for the Prime Minister, last night and has also announced that she is not prepared to act as 'Window dressing' for his two-tier Government.
What comes as a surprise, is that Coventry MP Bob Ainsworth has emerged as perhaps the biggest winner from today's chaotic Cabinet reshuffle after being propelled into the job of Defence Secretary.
'Bob', currently a junior defence minister, will replace his former boss John Hutton, who threw the reshuffle into disarray when he confirmed his intention to stand down from frontline politics this morning.
I first came across 'Bob' on the BBC's Newsnight some years ago when I was asked in by Jeremy Paxman, to debate, RIPA, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Bill, with him. I can't imagine anyone, less up to the job than 'Bob Ainsworth', a fundamentally unimaginative Labour stalwart and a natural bureacrat.
Not a good day for the Liberal Democrats either, a real body blow losing their homeland county seats in the Southwest and being hammered by the independents elsewhere.
For KCC, Chris Wells is back and so is Robert Burgess and I hear that Cllrs Hayton, Kirby and Bayford also made a strong showing and were returned.
They are now joined by new boy, Mike Jarvis. In Kent that leaves only two Labour county councillors remaining!
Labour's Clive Hart, Alan Poole and Iris Johnston never really stood a chance, thanks to the shambles at Westminster over the last week and I hear the result is much the same across the whole country but I need to watch Channel 4 News in a minute to find out more.
It will be interesting to see how the Euro-elections pan out. Here in Thanet, UKIP made a strong showing as one might expect and this may logically extend to the European results.
How Gordon Brown can resist the call for a General Election after all this I don't know. I'm sure he'll try though. His biographer has described him as a "Stalinist and a Marxist" and the ultimate political plotter. It all conjures up in my own mind, an image of the final days of Nu-Labour in the bunker, deep under No10, with local, county and Euro elections results raining down like the thunder of distant artillery!
