Sorry this is a day late. Blogger has been playing up... So who's had a good week? Are their fortunes on the up or on the wane? My Conventional Wisdom Index seeks to track the fortunes of the major players in British politics. Next installment on Saturday...
Tony Blair ↓
Pasting on all fronts
David Cameron ↑
Saw off Chameleon attack and great pictures from Norway
Ming Campbell ↓
Yet another anonymous week. Ridiculous comment about selling his Jag merely served to make him look weak.
Gordon Brown ↓

Conservative Party ↑

Liberal Democrats ↓
Michael Brown stormclouds appearing on the horizon. Otherwise yet another anonymous week.
George Bush ↑
Reshuffle in the White House puts Bush back on front foot again - just
Reputation of Politics ↓

West Ham United ↑
Cardiff here we come!
