I'm not buying Iain's election speculation

Iain Dale reckons we could be on for a 4 October general election, basing his speculation on activity at the Department of Health: ‘Tuesday is apparently full of big health events but these are now in doubt as No. 10 have apparently cleared their diary.’ Well, he’s right that Tuesday has a lot of DH announcements lined up… but I’m actually involved in some of it (of which more later…), and at the time of writing, nobody’s told me that Tuesday is off. I’ll actually be at DH on Tuesday, so if it happens, I’ll report live. Can’t say fairer than that.
