Could withdrawal from Iraq boost chances of an early election ?

According to the Independent, the military have conceded that there is nothing further to be gained from Britain's presence in Iraq and that we should "get out now".

This differs strongly from what the army have been saying for months and make one wonder if thew army has, in the past, been saying what tony Blair wanted it to say, and with a change at the top, now perhaps asking for the truth rather than the propaganda, the armed forces have finally told Gordon Brown what everyone else has known for some time, tat being, we should get out of Iraq with as much haste as possible.

Looking beyond this withdrawal, it also gives Gordon Brown more kudos, should he go ahead with it, and would allow him to add this to his list of achievements if he were to cal an early election, which to my mind, looks more likely be the week.
