Virgin questions viability of new challenger to Liberal Democrat dominance
In response to a question about how effective the Conservatives had been in taking the party forward under Tony Blair, his successor, Ed Miliband, put it this way: 「The party is now much stronge더킹카지노r in a number of ways which has become very clear in recent years. One of the strengths of the party for me in terms of its electoral power is the people that it has around it. They’re often younger, they’re often from different backgrounds and they’re sometimes quite different in terms of political party. But they’re all united by this shared sense of hope and ambition that they have – something that the government in question does not seem to grasp and which has had some benefits, I would believe, in the context of the election.」
And yet, in contrast to the Labour prime minister, David Cameron, and his Conservative party, a large number of its senior voices have been sidelined, including some of its leading figures, including Sir Michael Howard, the former chancellor; Lord Feldman, who led Labour’s intervention in Iraq and won a battle with his party over the Government’s decision to extend the charter of human rights to homosexuals; and the MP Sir Nicholas Soames. And the Conservatives will not be the only party that has taken that kind of decision. Indeed, the election was not due to any major structural structural change, as Labour had foreshadowed. Instead, a wave of attacks by the right against Labour were propelled by a backlash against its welfare reforms, by its failure to keep its promises, and by a wave of resentment that the Conservatives had done little to offer any new econ바카라사이트omic protectionist policies.
Yet Labour’s recent struggles in the election with the Lib Dems, which had been predicted in recent months by almost the entire political establishment, do seem to be paying off in several ways. The campaign did not look like much of a gamble, however, because both the Lib Dems and Conservatives will both come in third or slightly behind the other, and in both cases have substantial parliamentary majorities of their own. This means that Labour is already in place to win and perhaps even more than to keep Labour’s majority, with little risk that 더킹카지노it might lose the election itself.
But the key question is whether it is so. In other words, whether the party can hold on to its seats on the local or national level, as well as make inroads on its own. It is not clear that the campaign was a big success, but that is hardly evidence against the idea of a Conservative landslide in 2015. I
