Political Leadership

Cameron is reportedly wooing the Liberals for support in the event of a hung parliament.

With Brown one of the most unpopular prime ministers I can remember, even within his own party, the fact that a hung parliament is even a remote prospect doesn't say much for Cameron's leadership or confidence.

He should be contemplating a landslide, not a coalition.

Kinnock took a landslide for granted, and look what happened to him.

Too many people remember the Thatcher years. I strongly believe a hung parliament is a distinct possibility.

Cameron lacks substance. This will not be a landslide result.

"Cameron lacks substance."

Couldn't agree more - he makes Major look like a dynamic force!

Yes, the present crop of Tory politicians are nothing if not 'grey'. George looks and sounds as if he's still at school!
At least, from most posts on here, GB gives people something to get heated about (notwithstanding it's generally dislike!).
As has been said, could be a closer election than it appeared.

for revelations and scandals - they'll surface, once the media machine gets into election mode.

Politicians - if they're any good - will have studied British political history, and they'll know that as far as the electorate is concerned there's no such thing as a certainty.

George, who's he?

Who is this George you refer to as looking and sounding as if he's still at school?

Apologies, I was surprised you hadn't picked up on my meaning the 'impending' new Chancellor of the Exchequer (post election).
That 'George' will be second-in-command, will he not?

I see Charles kennedy has made a few tv appearances lately, coming from obscurity. I wonder if he'll make a comeback. He's certainly more heavy-weight than Nick Cleg.
