On the long-scale of reunion likelihood, running from The Smiths netherworld of impossibility to Madness' perpetual reformation, you can nudge the Libertines a couple of inches towards Madness. Carl Barat is making noises that he might consider it some time next year.
In unrelated news, Carl Barat's 'income/outgoing expenditure spreadsheet' has announced that the way things are going, the money might run out some time in 2011.
Luckily, there might be room in the diary:
"It's not definite definite. I can say 2011, but it's hard to plan the Libertines until next Tuesday. But 2011 is where there's room for that to happen. So if everything's all right, then, yeah, it would be glorious to get on the old jacket and venture forth, into the known."
It's not clear if there's an element of 'yeah, we must meet up this time - right now is tricky for me... how about some time before the end of recorded time?' to this. It's unlikely Pete Doherty makes firm plans more than about two hours in advance.
