Snap out of it!

It's time to snap out of it. The Tories need to stop wondering in private about the unfairness of the media or the brutishness of Peter Mandelson. They need to come out and fight fire with fire, show the kind of ruthless killer instinct that comes naturally to Labour. But rather than match Mr Brown's dishonesty, they need only remind us every minute of every day why, when he tells us that "for better or for worse, with me: what you see is what you get", what we see is truly terrible, and far, far worse than any alternative.
Yep, it seems about right.

That, by the way, is the punch-line paragraph from Benedict Brogan's piece in the Telegraph.

Read it all, it'll only take a couple of minutes.

I'm beginning to wonder if people aren't right, and they don't WANT to win the next election and have to sort out Brown's mess.

Nothing else really explains the lacklustre performance...

We've been saying the same - who on earth really wants to win this election and take on the poisoned chalice.
