What a load of pathetic codswallop from Mandy. If he, a thrice disgraced minister, can return, the even more discredited and morally bankrupt Labour party can.
He argued that the Tories are on the wrong side of the argument on the economy. That’s strange, since we are on the same side as the public.
But arrogant Labour thinks it is right, no matter though no more than about twenty per cent , if even that much , will back it…
This is why the Brownian-Mandelsonian shambles must be wiped out asap.
Tim Montgomerie reckons Cameron understands the current financial meltdown. I write the following as a friend of the Conservatives and an enemy of Labour.
Cameron doesn’t write his own speeches – and the speechwriter-cum-adviser in question has probably left to work in PR or the City or somewhere (hopefully not in a Bank, although these are the safest Government-backed jobs there are any more). Hence, neither Cameron nor Osborne really understand the current crisis, otherwise they would not have reacted in the way they have.
The Conservatives’ biggest strategic error has been to go bipartisan at a time when they should be criticising the Government’s economic record. This is only likely to give Labour a better opinion poll rating – a get out of jail free card, if you like. And, what happens, but Labour improves in the polls. If Cameron had attacked Labour robustly at his conference two weeks ago, the news agenda would not have been allowed to shift in this way. Despite the Tory pseudo-strategy to attack Brown on the ‘real economy’ later when they should have opposed the Bank nationalisation now, Brown is likely to go for a Spring 2009 election if he thinks the Tories have lost it and he can narrow the polls further.
Also this is at a time when Lord Mandelson has been brought back into the Government, and is responsible for all the spin – why else has the media narrative changed from Brown-and-Out to Brown the Great Leader? Even Paul Krugman has fallen for Brown’s socialist nationalisation of banks – which proves that you can be intelligent and be a Nobel Laureate, but not necessarily have any common sense or judgment!
No one had the guts to stand up to Stalin either.
What I would like to know is : Has Brown agreed a Faustian pact with Mandelson?
