20 POINT LEAD OVER LABOUR!


The Latest IPSOS/MORI Poll gives the Conservatives a 20 point lead over labour...
DEAD MAN WALKING ON THE GREEN MILE!

After a brief and rather surreal blip in which he appeared to be absolutely delighted by the economic crisis, Gordon Brown once again looks like a dead man walking. His own Cabinet colleagues conspire with loyal Labour commentators to undermine him with rumours of a leadership challenge, or a face-saving escape route for him to a position on the global stage. This is the terminal phase of a prime minister's decline, generally recognisable to everyone except the leader himself 
[...] 
a party that remains in power under a grossly unpopular leader can stagger on long enough to become not just discredited but utterly loathed. 

The longer a failing prime minister defies gravity and clings to office, the more likely his party is to become hated with a visceral intensity that can keep it in the wilderness for a political generation 
[...] 
"Time to let the other lot have a chance." Politics is less gentlemanly now, and more driven by personal obsession. But the public is still unforgiving to those who refuse to admit that they are no longer wanted.
