Quote of the Day

Rachel Sylvester writes

“Meanwhile, like new Labour with its red-rose pagers in the 1990s, Conservative HQ shows growing signs of control-freakery as party managers attempt to contain the message. Frontbenchers must provide a list of all lunches that they have with journalists and are forbidden to do unauthorised interviews.”

      We’ll see – quite shortly as it happens.

      But Conservative shadow cabinet members could do with improving their game. Right now their message isn’t heard very well. They need to sing like a choir otherwise nothing will get across.

      Labour still do this very effectively.

      Its not pretty, its not ideal, it would be great if for example Labour minister actually made substantive arguments and engaged in debate on TV – but they don’t. All they care about is getting the narrative across from their script to voters sub conscious without passing through the mind of either.

      The Conservative party have to match them. The alternative is 5 more years of Gordon Brown.

    [...] There’s dirty politics going on, folks and the aim is to, under no circumstances accede to the will of the people to have a say in their affairs but to retain control, by all means possible, of the reins of power in Westminster.  Guido posts on this. [...]

Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
