Oh what a night!

I was again glued to my TV set last night in utter disbelief at the course the events of the day had taken. Britain woke up on Tuesday morning still not sure when or indeed it'll have a new PM.

And by the end of the day, Gordon Brown had resigned delivering the most genuine and emotional speech I've seen him give and letting in the first conservative PM in thirteen years.

It was a breathtaking day as Nick Robinson put it on his blog.
The youngest prime minister in nearly 200 years.
A coalition in power for the first time in 70 years.
The Conservatives ejecting a Labour government for the first time in over 30 years.
However all these dramatic events did not take away from the night's suspense. Despite his trip to Buckingham Palace and his speech in front of No.10, David Cameron had so much more to tell the people of Britain, like:

What does a full and proper coalition with teh Lib Dems really mean?
What jobs and how many are the Lib Dems getting in his cabinet?
And how just HOW is a Lib-Con gov. going to work???

My favorite moments:
  • When GB's voice broke as he spoke about his family. Really touching.
  • When the Browns (including the two boys who are super cute and made GB look all sweet and human just for a moment) came out to greet the press on their way to Buckingham Palace.
  • Samantha Cameron starting to wave at the press and then breaking into a timid smile as if to say 'I can't believe I'm doing this!'
