Wot's all this, then?

Anyone who tried to follow the goings-on over the pond with the British election could be forgiven for being a mite confused by the whole thing.  An inconclusive election day last week culminated on Monday with PM Gordon Brown abdicating his position and giving way to a coalition government -- all after Queen Elizabeth first offered her blessing.  For some reason the whole thing reminded me of this scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail ("Help! Help! I'm bein' repressed!").  I wasn't the only one struck by the Python-ness of the whole thing, as former Python Terry Jones has chimed in with how to avoid similar parliamentary foul-ups in the future.
