There was a spate of local Government Ellections, and a Spate of European Parliamentary Ellections.
Labour Party has lost control of several Councils that it has rulled for more then THREE DECADES in the south of England. The Conservatives are up more then 10percent apparently. The UK Independance Party (which is Anti-Euro) had its wicked way at the European Parliament.

In the last week four seniors from his Party Resigned, spearheaded now by, believe it or not, Female Ministers who are resigning left, right and centre, some over the expenses scandle, and some over the fact Gordon Brown wont step down and let someone else lead them into the next General Ellection.
Meanwhile...Prince Charles turned up at Normandy...well...at least England decided to mark the occasion I suppose
