So Gordon Brown has chickened out of an election.
Let me remind you that Gordon Brown is an unelected Prime Minister: that's the sort of thing they have in North Korea, not a major democratic nation. Indeed he wasn't even elected by his own party.
Gordon Brown said that he wanted the election to be held on the NHS: well, we were ready to tell the public what a shambles he has made of the NHS. When we do have an election, we will still be ready.
