Talking of Labour's dirty tricks, I see they have just lobbed at Cameron a letter "written" by a dozen or so Labour Luvvies (and Unite, natch) complaining about homophobia in the Tory party (see LabourList).

I wonder what tomorrow will bring? Perhaps even now NuLab are finding a dozen or so "community leaders" to write Cameron a letter about institutional racism in the Tory party.

Iain, any chance of an opinion on Osborne's speech? Seems to be a vacuum today.

As somebody who hopes to see the back of Brown I was less than impressed by Osbourne's speech. Lots of pain - but no hope for the future.

Beware the Tories snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

You must be a typical Brit voter then - ask for honesty and openness, but at the first sign of somebody telling how it is, you want to run off and bury your head in the UKIP/Greeny sand ? Bulldog spirit eh ?

At conferences it's usually the Chancellor/Shadow who does the bad news bit, then the leader does the uplifting bit.

At least four decent speeches so far: Boris, Hague, Osborne and Clarke, and not even a whimper from "away with the fairies" Iain Dale. Great blogging - not!

Dimoto,

It all depends upon how much of a 'loser' you are with Osbourne's policies. In my case our family is going to be hit in several ways, so I am entitled to thing little of what has been said. The cuase of this economic crisis was not feckless lending or borrowing on our part.

Since the Tories look as if they are going to welch over the EU - and it is a big driver of policies in this country now - why not vote UKIP, at least we will start to get control of our destiny again.
