Would it be the same today?
As we’ve go into the last day of conference season 2013 one thing’s for sure, the political world does looks different from early September when the Lib Dems gathered in Glasgow.
There was fairly sober but surprisingly upbeat LD conference; the UKIP one not shaping up quite as Farage planned; the drama of EdM’s speech and his commitment on energy prices; and of course the current Tory event which has been somewhat overshadowed by the flare-up between the LAB leader and the Daily Mail.
What is very clear is that the narrative has changed particularly over Ed Miliband. It is hard to imagine David Cameron in his speech today being able to describe Ed Miliband as “weak, weak, weak”.
Whether the new tag of him being a socialist is going to resonate and do damage only time will tell.
- What conference season 2013 has done is define strongly the battle lines for GE2015. There is clear blue, or red if you like, water between the two main parties.
If Opinium was to ask the same question about the GE2015 outcome in their next poll then I think they would find a different outcome.
Still there is today’s big Cameron speech – what is that going to do?
If you’ve not seen it the big clash overnight
