Tony Christie, eat your heart out

By Mark Mardell
Chief political correspondent

POSTED: Wednesday 6 April, 1155BST

I'm still reeling from my early (and distinctly strange) start to the day.

We're making new titles for the This Week programme ..(which will be on TV twice a week, Monday and Thursdays, during the election). I can't say too much but think Tony Christie, Peter Kay, road to the election, Andrew Neil in a purple suit and me jogging. The editor has already said sorry for destroying my career.

On GMTV this morning, T Blair almost - nearly - confirms the chancellor will stay chancellor if Labour wins. They will be asked more at a news conference about 1.30 this afternoon.

Brownites meanwhile are wondering what a French "non" in its referendum on the EU constitution would mean for them. If the French kill the constitution, there will be no subsequent British referendum. And then there is no natural break point for TB to depart.

Fount of all wisdom, Lizzi the producer, has just observed that Blair and Brown have only spoken to children so far in this campaign. What is it the Jesuits say?
