Labour’s Lemming-Like Lunacy

When you look at this morning’s YouGov poll in the Torygraph you have to wonder if the Labour party is having a collective moment of Lemming-like lunacy. Blair is undeniably more popular than Brown. Voters would far prefer to live under a Cameron government than a Brown government by a 10% margin.

Even if Brown signalled straight-away that he intended to bring the boys back from Iraq, (something that would be popular), he would be supported in this by the Tories, so no real advantage will come even from that. The much heralded “Brown Bounce” seems as real a prospect as a “Brown tax cut”. Left-wing voters will still remember that he wrote the cheques for the war and right-wing voters will always say it was his fault that the army was ill equipped, under-funded and over-stretched. The Brown bounce will be a dead-Lemming bounce.

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
