Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This is the kind of area in which Labour shine. If only they had Gordon Brown at the helm, they could easily storm the next general election, where the latest FT Poll put them at a two-figure majority – very good in most circumstances, but a big drop for Mr Blair. The Conservatives are doing some serious catch-up work – only a two point difference now – which is obviously good for my wish of a close-run thing, with no party having a very large majority.
