King-Byng v2.0: Black Friday?

In a crisis, you are always in danger of, to use an apt BBC term, "being overtaken by events."

The Conservatives have blinked. Except they haven't. The pundits are furious. The Opposition parties have snapped. Or have regained a sense of purpose. Or something.

Remember that roulette ball? It's up in the air at the moment, and no one knows where it's going to land. My bet is on a number Stephen Harper likes - but hope springs eternal in the human breast.
