The performance was very good.  He looked relaxed.  The conversational style worked well on television.  (I couldn’t get back to the Winter Gardens in time from a lunchtime fringe meeting I was chairing).

He certainly achieved balance – talking about more familiar and newer themes.  I would have preferred one or two issues to stand out a little more.  Crime, in particular but if the speech had one big theme it was David Cameron.  He reminded the nation and the party that he’s a great communicator. 

Gordon Brown must know that he’ll face an awesome opponent if he calls an election and, because of the last few days, a party that has vote-changing policies for the doorstep voter.  I don’t believe that we’re ready to win an election but…

PARTY UNITY
+ THE STRONG POLICIES OF THE LAST FEW DAYS
+ £10M WARCHEST FOR TOP TARGET SEATS
+ ON FORM DAVID CAMERON
+ MORE MESS-UPS FROM BROWN LIKE YESTERDAY’S IRAQ SPIN
= LOST LABOUR MAJORITY
