Cameron Prime Minister by Tuesday?

Nick Clegg has apparently set a 24-hour deadline for a deal to be completed with the Conservatives, otherwise he's looking elsewhere. He believes the public will start to get restive without a solution soon. Rumour has it that Clegg and Cameron are getting on well, and that an increasing number of Labour MPs want to go gently into the night of opposition now. Cameron is meeting his own MPs tomorrow evening - if the new ones can actually get into the Westminster without any passes. How they react to the weekend's discussions will actually be the first indication of how this very new grouping, with its virtually unprecedented number of new MPs, will operate under Cameron's leadership in the new parliament.
