A GP neighbour writes:

Last week I had a politician in my surgery – a Conservative. I asked him why, given the cock-ups of Labour, the Tories were not heading for an obvious landslide. He answered immediately that it was ‘the press’.

My own feeling is that it is the policies. Think of the New Labour cock-ups: the NHS, Iraq, Afghanistan, the banks, pro-cyclical fiscal policies, selling our gold - I could go on. Now think of the Conservative policies on the same topics. Did they exert a cautionary influence on New Labour or did they egg them on? You decide. It’s your vote.
