"Game on" is the expression being used by one senior adviser to David Cameron to describe the new contours of the political landscape.  Although we need a lot more detail from both our frontbench and from Labour, there’s a real choice again in British politics (click on the graphic to enlarge it):

There is also a real possibility of unity within the Conservative Party – perhaps the greatest opportunity since the Cameron-Osborne project began.  The fiscal conservatives have retained the integrity of their position by ruling out further borrowing and by insisting on social and budgetary reforms that will start to return order and discipline to the public finances.  But also happier are the more hawkish small government conservatives.  The focus on eliminating waste and controlling spending gives them heart about future possibilities for lower taxation.  Peace may be about to break out in our party.
