This morning I did the Sky News paper review alongside the lovely Nancy Dell'Olio. We got chatting and she was saying how much she admired Tony Blair. The conversation moved on and I jokingly suggested she should support David Cameron after he said he was the 'heir to Blair'. To my utter astonishment she said she did indeed support David Cameron and would vote for him if she could*. Bear in mind that Nancy has been a Labour Party donor in the recent past and last year attended a fundraising dinner at Wembley. So she personifies the story in today's Observer that Labour donors are deserting the party.
