The phantom General Election of 2007


You have hand it to Gordon Brown- it takes some real skill to manufacture such an unmitigated political disaster out of thin air. He's still Prime Minister, he still has a Labour majority in the Commons, but thanks to his appallingly bad judgement in trying to spin to victory, he is now an infinitely diminished figure, subjected to gleeful taunts by his opponents and criticism from his party and the media. The only comfort I can think of for him is that the blame is not all his- David Cameron has performed superbly this week, Leading a Conservative fightback that many thought impossible. We've now seen the contrast between the great Prime Minister Cameron will be, and the weak, brooding coward with whom we're stuck for another few years.
