Hello Max

My try is like this:

Well, Ladies and gentlemen, we've done it again - another election victory. The last four years of office has been a wonderful time for the party, a tale of adversity overcome. 1 (No sooner) had we come to office than the Stock Market crashed. But we survived that scare, and we came out of it stronger for the experience. The opposition claimed we were faltering. 2 (Seldom) have I heard such hypocrisy from a party which continues to squabble internally for the next four years. Then 3 (along) came a fellow called David Rew, with his new breakaway Democratic party - but he didn't have much success in the opinion polls! 4 (Not only) did he claim he'd become Prime Minister within three years, he also reckoned that this party was now unpopular with younger voters. 5 (Little) did he realize that it would be the young voters who gave us an overwhelming vote of confidence in yesterday's election. 6 (Scarcely) had the first votes rolled in when it was obvious that we would be re-elected with a huge majority. 7 (Such) was the extent of our victory that the New Democrats obtained a meager five seats. 8 (Had) they known they would perform so poorly, I don't think they would have been quite so scathing in their criticism of our economic policy. But rest assured, ladies and gentlemen, 9 (under no circumstance) will we rest on our laurels. There is no room for complacency in the government. And I am confident, 10 (as) I'm sure are most of you, that the next four years will be a resounding success. Thank you.

My question is why you chose for gap 3 - along gap 4 not only gap 5 little
and could you explain to me the meaning of these phrases - no sooner,then along came ???
And what's the difference between than and when ? when than means when.
#1) "No sooner X happened than Y happened" ="(X happened) no sooner than (Y happened) = No [ (X happened) sooner than (Y happened)] ="X and Y happened almost at the same time". "When" is a conjunction to lead a time adverbial clause. "Than" is a conjunction or preposition for comparison.
#3) "Come along" is "come to appear on the stage or in front of audience". This "along" is an adverb of direction and directional adverbs often cause adverbial inversion.
#4) Not only ... also
#5) Little = not at all = never
