General Election set for 6 May (update)

Further to my posting of yesterday, the BBC did manage to write about this story with this piece headlined "Cabinet minister 'hints' at May date for election". The article was briefly linked from the BBC's main news page but this morning neither appears there or on the main politics news page. For the BBC it is a non-story although if challenged they will point to the page to show they reported the gaffe.

As to whether this proves that the date of the general election has been fixed as 6 May? Part of me thinks that this could be part of a clever disinformation campaign by Peter Mandelson and Al Campbel but then would they really pick Bob Ainsworth for such an important role?
