Danny Finkelstein and Guido had a bit of Twitter spat about this last night. Guido holds Fink responsible for accepting the Balls/Brown dividing lines and helping to foist on the Tories their “no tax cuts” position. A policy position that Guido sees as cowardice in the face of the enemy.
Quite. People are following the money. Some things really do never change, even in this time of what we are being led to believe is some sort of new era of a woolly-headed progressive consensus. The people, it seems, disagree. You'd think "Conservatives" would be sensitive to that. Real ones would - and are.
