Election off

In life you get some predictions wrong and this was one of them, at the end of the day the Prime Minster Gordon Brown took the decision not to call an election using all the evidence he had before. He will of course be accused of being a bottler, coward and all the names under the sun from the opposition, but I happen to believe he is a man of stature and when the time comes to call an election he will win the election.

Politics is all about choices and get an election decision wrong it may have been disastrous for the party, it happened in 1970 when we had large leads in the polls and the Tories won against all predictions. Cameron may have had a bounce in the polls, but give it a few months and this story will have long died the death.

At least it avoids traipsing the streets during the dark nights of October!

No - he isn't a coward or a bottler. Just another run of the mill politician doing what he thinks is right for his party. The longer he carries on the harder it will be to spin him as a man of vision. S pragmatist and a Machiavelian schemer. Happy days!

I see you dont allow any comments on your site that reveal the true meaning of Brown deciding not to go ahead, the Tory conference went so well, it scared him off! bet you dont post this to your blog, Martin.

Oh, just got my latest glossy leaflet from you guys - expecting an election were we, 'cos that's the only time I ever hear from Labour where I live!
With all that cash I'd have expected a better design - also interested to see the snide digs at the Lib Dems - got you guys rattled have they?
