Rebels have stormed Tripoli, and captured two of Gaddafi's sons. Here is what the papers had to say
Looks like its the final curtain for Gadaffi, constantly urging his supporters to figt to the last drop of their blood etc etc etc, but himself nowhere to be seen on the frontline.

I've said this before Nick is growing in stature as DPM and could eclipse the Tory Leadership, because he is taking advantage of any opportunity going to put himself in the limelight. Good for him, not afraid to step forward and be counted.
The Great British Public are not going to be easily rid of this Coalition in a hurry. They are here to stay for a bit longer, just like Gadaffi.
