Blair poised to name polling day

Prime Minister Tony Blair is expected today to call a General Election for Thursday May 5.
He is expected to go to Buckingham Palace in the morning, asking the Queen to dissolve Parliament no later than next Monday.

The move follows a frantic few days since the death of Pope John Paul II on Saturday, which caused Mr Blair to postpone a Downing Street announcement, which had been anticipated yesterday.
