The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Telegraph comment.....

According to The Daily Telegraph:-

"Elections are won by party members and activists who must have not only the enthusiasm to do the leg-work but also the conviction to sway the undecided. A depleted and half-hearetd army of the snubbed and the disaffected, fighting for a leader in whose selection they had no real say, would be no match for the Lib Dems' wall-eyed fanatics, let alone Labour workers with incumbancy on their side."

I have said it before - any leader not only needs to re-engage with the electorate - but they also have the job of inspiring and motivating the activists. Surely a leadership election is a prime opportunity for the candidates to enthuse us to get on with the most important job of taking the fight to Labour.
