Dead in the water

Cameron losing Tory grassroots support, poll shows

David Cameron is losing his appeal to voters, according to a Guardian/ICM poll published tomorrow which suggests that many Conservative voters have come to dislike the Tory leader. It also shows that he is no longer attracting new support to the party.

The poll, giving Labour a six-point lead, has the Conservative party on its lowest share in any ICM poll since the last days of Michael Howard's leadership in 2005.

Cameron has about as much chance of getting to Number 10 as I have. He's finished before he has even started. The Tories chose a Blair clone just as Blairism went out of fashion. Cameron will never be PM while he's got a hole in his arse. Whatever you think of Labour at least they knew how to pick a winner.

If we get a late summer Brown should go to the country. He'll walk it.
