« Ann Widdecombe backs 'streetfighter' Davis | Main | The Dimbleby Leadership Debate - Part 2 »

Comments

James Maskell

Policy shifts on Immigration...can anyone explain? I didnt think he had shifted.

DC's strategy of supporting Labour to encourage rebellion is clever but I dont like it.

James Hellyer

James, I think it's a reference to Cameron's backpedalling on the elction commitment to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Convention - a policy he originally created IIRC.

Editor

James Hellyer is right. The policy shift was discussed on Thursday's Newsnight interview.

Cutting taxes win elections

Davis is winning comfortably, Cameron is too general and starting to sound like an old-fashioned wet.

Observer

Isn't the point about Cameron that he isn't an old-fashioned Wet, he's a modern Wet?

Elena

Cameron is doing better than he did on Newsnight, but he's still rambling.

Elena

Sorry, I'll stress I meant the Newsnight debate with Davis.

Henry Fitzpatrick

Why did they pick Repton as the venue? Because a minor public school would upset Davis and Cameron equally?

Daniel Vince-Archer

I'm glad David Davis picked up on Cameron's inconsistency. Quite frankly, inconsistency is one of the major flaws in Cameron's agenda IMHO and I'm surprised more hasn't been made of it. There was Cameron preaching about the importance of being consistent and not appearing opportunistic, when Davis neatly stopped him in his tracks by pointing out that he's been performing U-turns left, right and centre with regards to abandoning policies he co-ordinated for the 2005 election. Bullseye!

James Maskell

Wasnt Repton where they famously had the Grammar School vote and the parents voted to continue it as a Grammar School?

Interested Observer

That was Ripon.

James Maskell

Thanks Observer...

Richard Carey

"Davis is winning comfortably, Cameron is too general and starting to sound like an old-fashioned wet."

Isn't this the tone of Westminster village talk from about 10-20 years ago? I've never in fact bothered to find out what the "wets and drys" labels (slurs?) were all about, but strangely it's never stopped me getting Conservative candidates elected lately... but I'm sure that this does make us all sound like braying Tory-boys sometimes. Not good! All we need is the guy at the back, shouting "sound, sound..." as if he wants us to turn the speakers up!

"with regards to abandoning policies he co-ordinated for the 2005 election. Bullseye!"

No, Bull-something-else. David Frum (a former speechwriter for GW Bush)once said that "the first reaction of a political part, when rejected by the elctorate, having offered ham & eggs, is nearly always to offer double ham and eggs".

The policies we offered in 2005 were broadly unconvincing to the electorate when offered under our perceived brand, and were rejected accordingly. In the aftermath of that rejection, does anyone really want us to offer more of the same? Or should we listen, learn and change?


Rick

"The policies we offered in 2005 were broadly unconvincing to the electorate when offered under our perceived brand, "


Not really, both major parties seem to have agreed to hold a policy-free election and not discuss certain themes.

The electorate had a joke manifesto from Labour full of hot-air and a Conservative offering of slogans. It was a Baldwin "Safety First" election - stick with the devil you know or risk the Tories and their secret agenda as propounded by Howard Flight.

Noone trusts the Tories not to do it all over again, and the simple fact that they are the Political Establishment in the South-East makes it easy for other Parties to attack them and pretend to be the Outsiders - the fact that Labour has built a nice Establishment of its own has not detracted from the fact that Thatcher played The Outsider to win over frustrated voters.............Cameron can never play The Outsider.
