You got to have some sympathy for David Cameron, the current leader of the Conservative Opposition. No matter how hard he tries to put forward his party’s message to the people, nobody seems to want to listen.
The Conservatives are having one huge problem at the moment- The Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Brown, like Tony Blair before him, is spending a lot of time trying to convince Tory voters that he is like them… and unfortunately for the real Tories, it seems to be working. Recent opinion polls show the Conservatives doing badly behind Labour.
When Cameron was asked if they was ready to fight a snap general election, he swiftly replied, “You bet!“. Yet there have been rumours that all is not well inside the party. Even exposing most of the Labour government’s poor record of late, particularly in banking and farming, hasn’t lead to any effective increase in public support.
That is bad news for British democracy. Labour, because of ten years of mismanagement, do not deserve to be reelected to govern… at any time. The nation needs a rejuvenated opposition, but at present it’s not even to begun to happen….
