Brown gives Tories helping hand,but at what cost?

Brown's rejection of a slim win of say around 50 seats
has backfired and given impetus to what was an ailing party.
if we step back from the helter skelter of today's poll readings
which actually suggest that the tories have surged ahead
what seems to transpire is that some tory initiatives are attractive to
the electorate but Cameron personally is not.what looks like a knee jerk
response to browns over-politicking may be a bruise worth taking.after
all even with these impressive figures of a seven point lead the
electorate still say that Brown makes the better leader,even combined
with Darling.meanwhile the tory party,for some time accused of having no
policies have had three election type policy proposals flushed out of them.
Labour have unashamedly stolen them and have left the tories where they started
a party without any distinguishable policies from what is increasing becoming a very right wing labour party.labour may have lost this battle but have positioned
themselves better to win the war.

Camerons speech won't claw back ten point deficit

with a determined view to differentiate himself and his party
from Labour, Cameron elected not to read from an autocue but his
speech could have been scripted by anyone of Blair's old cronies.
His ceaseless effort to change brand Tory to brand Tony was only
mildly tweaked to please the octogenarians in Blackpool's Conference
Hall. While choosing to talk tough on immigration he failed to
mention that he is in essence powerless to effect change without
repealing the European human rights's laws as stipulated in the European
constitution. So Bloggers and journalists alike are left as uninspired
as an enthusiastic old Tory. We too have to rehash the same reviews.
His cappuccino politics and latte style have left him short on substance
but rich on froth. If an election were called tomorrow it would
unfortunately be a contest between Wigan and Real Madrid. Mantras
such as behaviour,behaviour,behaviour just don't have the tricolonic
punch of an education,education,education. Add that to a u-turn
on grammar schools and an Eton education for all aspiration and u
are left with a leader looking ineffective as well as unbelievable.
aside-current fees for Eton school approx £25000 per year!
