Shocking Change In Britain?

I'm watching CNN.  The crawl at the bottom of the screen says that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has resigned.  The live picture shows an aerial view of what seems to be a white vehicle heading to 10 Downing Street.  The camera stays on that car for a considerable period of time.

And my immediate thought is:  Oh My God.  O.J. is the next prime minister.
