Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
May 2009 is a likely election date, based on recent practice, but an election is not required under current law before June 2010 (five years after the current Parliament first met after the 2005 election).

It would also be possible to legislate to extend the term of the current Parliament. It would be crazy to hold a UK general election on the usual schedule, if the Scottish members were going to leave Westminster in three months.
