Dave Mentioned Labour 26 Times (Compared to 17 Times in 2012 Speech)

DAVE

cameron-conference-speech-2013-corrected

Despite spending the last three years calling Ed Miliband a weak leader, Dave spent vast swathes of his speech addressing the Eds directly and doing a line by line take down of Labour’s Brighton announcements. While Labour are jeering that the PM is rattled, they are less quiet about the fact the Tories have finally managed to get some decent, simple explanations to why Miliband’s new policies are crackers. The official pre-briefed version of the speech had Labour mentioned 14 times and Balls twice. The version actually delivered has plenty more digs (26) and references to “what we heard last week.” Last year he said the word “Labour” just twice.

It was Cameron down the camera, looking directly into the eyes of the viewers, helped by giant autocue screens placed in his line of sight in the middle of the audience. Guido’s favourite bit was when the PM claimed that he did not lead a party of shoddy compromise, apart of course from when they made a shoddy compromise to get into power rather than attempting to rule as a minority government. But who cares for details eh?

Quote of the Day

No prizes for guessing who Andrea Leadsom is talking about:

“As you said last week, Mr Speaker, we have a responsibility to safeguard the rights of this House and as Leader of the House I seek to do exactly that, treating all members of parliament with courtesy and respect. I hope and expect all Honourable and Right Honourable members to do likewise.”
