Of Ballots and Bookies

The end is nigh, if you haven’t voted yet, you are too late. The bookies have stopped taking bets on Cameron, the campaigns have drawn to a halt and Guido for one is relieved that the marathon is over.

Basher’s campaign team have their CVs out, Davis himself is reading Jane’s Defence Weekly, even Wat Tyler accepts that an Elvis comeback is more likely than a Davis victory.

Michael Howard, by design or a stroke of luck, has revived the Tories for his own chosen sucessor. The Tories have benefitted massively from the campaign amongst the chattering / political classes and the media. When the Indy devotes a six page supplement to Cameron, you know that Hampstead is once again contemplating voting Tory. How will he play out with the wider public? My hunch is that he will do better than the polls currently suggest. Gordon Brown will lose to Cameron, because given a choice between dour, tired and old, versus young, fresh and optimistic, Britain will vote for change. But only if Cameron really changes the Tories as promised. The fizzy water is on ice in Notting Hill and invites are out for a we-can’t-call-it a-victory-party-yet party on Tuesday afternoon. A smiling Cameron is on the way to 10 Downing Street, and power is a head-rush better than any other he has experienced…
