One of those days


Various bits of news made me think of this video clip from 2007:

For the record, I’m not actually convinced we would be doing much better under Blair. The polls were still awful back in the latter days of Blair. Party membership was hemorrhaging. And in terms of the government’s policy direction, I agree with much of what is argued here.

But although I’m no expert political strategist, surely we shouldn’t be getting ourselves into situations where we look like the party of total bastards and the Tories – who based their last general election campaign on anti-immigration slogans and who want to prioritise cutting inheritance tax  – are able to get away with posturing as the nice guys?

    The Tories will command a giant majority next year, not because anyone likes the Tories, but because people do not like Gordon Brown.
    It’s a shame. I don’t want to live in a Conservative Britain.
