Doctor Who timeline and Saxon thoughts

Just general musings on where we are in relation to what's been shown on screen and how Saxon fits in.

March 5th-6th, 2005: Rose (from missing poster in AoL)
March 6th-7th, 2006: Aliens of London/World War III (Rose+12 months)
September 2006: Boom Town (AoL+6 months)
October/November 2006: Parting of the Ways (Between BT and TCI)
December 24th-25th 2006: The Christmas Invasion (stated in episode)
Spring 2007: New Earth
February 1st 2007: Rise of the Cybermen/Age of Steel (day/month stated in episode, year logical follow on from TCI)
March 2007: School Reunion (18 months before SJA)
March 2007: Love & Monsters
2007: Army of Ghosts/Doomsday
2007: Torchwood 1-1 to 1-9 (TCI was 'last year')
December 2007: Torchwood 1-10 (Christmas trees on display)
December 25th 2007: The Runaway Bride (stated in episode)
Spring 2008: Torchwood 11-13 (following on from previous episodes)
April 2008 : Smith and Jones (guess at the moment, but Martha refers to the Cybermen thing ie Doomsday so it's after that)
September 2008: Sarah Jane Adventures: Invasion of the Bane (school year beginning so September and year after SR)

(Excellent timeline borrowed from the nice people over at TWOP)

So, in general, Harriet Jones goes at the end of 2006/start of 2007, and by March that year Saxon is leading in polls (according to L&M). Makes sense that he's taking over the remains of Harriet's party and becoming leader. Given the amount of Vote Saxon posters around the place (ie still stuck on the walls of alleys in Smith and Jones), I guess he called a general election to make sure the public was fully in support of his policies and he'd have a number of years before any political pressure could really be applied.

What is definite, is that he's got enough clout in The Runaway Bride to be able to order tanks to fire on the spaceship, which sounds an awful lot like he's Prime Minister by then.
