The Tories go on the offensive with a personal attack against Ed Miliband – but there are dangers with this approach

February 24th, 2014

And we’ve got more than 14 months to go

I’m not convinced that the Tories have got this right. An attack like this has its dangers particuarly, I’d suggest, for Grant Shapps.

We saw last autumn how the Labour leader was able to turn the Daily Mail attacks on Miliband’s father into a positive and that could happen this time.

I’d have thought that the strongest CON card was the economy. Why not play that?

Methinks this is a mistake.
