In The Sun this morning Trevor Kavanagh dismisses the Tories chances of winning the next election, writing:
“Gordon Brown is going to win—and win big. In the process he will likely set Labour up for a fifth term and 20 unbroken years of socialism.
Why? Not because he has necessarily delivered a better Britain over the past ten years – though he has been fiendishly clever.
But because the Tories are still soft, arrogant and – some say – idle.”
Kavanagh goes on to contrast Brown’s workaholic determination with the Tories more relaxed approach. Indeed, it is one of the many ironies of the past few week that Alastair Campbell’s diaries that were expected to embarrass Brown have actually caused more problems for Cameron by showing just how hard Blair, Campbell, Mandelson et al. laboured for that 1997 victory.
