The BBC is reporting that the squatter at 10 Downing Street is about to be evicted - under his own terms - read on:
Gordon Brown has said he is stepping down as Labour Party leader - as his party opens formal talks with the Lib Dems about forming a government.
Mr Brown, prime minister since 2007, said he hoped a successor as Labour leader would be in place by September.
The Lib Dems have been negotiating for days with the Tories - who won the most seats and votes in the UK election.
But the Lib Dems have asked for formal talks with Labour. Mr Brown said it was in the "national interest" to respond.
Mr Brown's statement will be seen as a move to smooth the way to a deal between Labour and the Liberal Democrats to form a government.
BBC political editor Nick Robinson said it was an audacious bid by Mr Brown to keep Labour in power - and himself in power for a limited period.
So, it seems as though the UK is headed for a centre-left, minority coalition government, the price of which is Gordon Brown's head on a platter. Nick Clegg is indeed proving to be a kingmaker, a la Winston Peters.
But it's not set in concrete yet; the Lib-Dems and the Tories are still talking. To take down Brown but still fail to take power will be but a Phyrric victory for David Cameron.
Interesting times await. Whatever the final makeup of the government, we doubt that it will be another five years before the next British election.
