A rightist take on Cameron

Very interesting that

"almost half of voters confess that they don't know exactly what he stands for – and the figure has remained steady for the past 15 months. Most worrying of all for the Tories is the fact that a third of their own voters don't know what their party leader stands for."

Hardly surprising in that he will say one thing one minute, the opposite the next. David Chamelon is not too far off

i thought 'don't say anything' was a good strategy at first, with policies coming out not long before the election. He still has time to do that, and now is probably his best chance to set out some solid, divisive policies. I think all sides need some policies which are divisive, so that some people will get pissed off but others will love them. Potential Vote Loosers, but potential vote winners.
He's started with The Sun yesterday, but he's got a long way to go before he can lead people into battle.

"For those reasons the media won’t allow the “smile, nod, wave and say very little” brigade to win the day. Team Cameron will be questioned about their detailed plans and consequences.

We come back to the Marr interview. As mentioned below it was a less than impressive performance by Cameron, which Mike Smithson has also picked up on. There was that rather fretful look on his face and his failure to give answers to key questions on Lisbon and what public spending cuts would mean for unemployment.

It was clear that Cameron's strategy for “Operation Seal the Deal” will be “smile, nod, wave and say very little”.

On the evidence of this morning, he may not be allowed to get away with it."

Well, we all know where Gordon Brown stands - an dllok where that has taken him in the polls!

Oh dear, I really must take more water with it! Let's try again:

Well, we all know where Gordon Brown stands - and look where that has taken him in the polls!

(Bring back the quill pen, that's what I say!)

aye, it's an interesting point about principles and pragmatism. I don't think Brown could do anything just at the moment
