Is this the agenda for Brown to make trouble for Cameron?
A striking illustration of the challenge facing David Cameron comes from a Populus survey of MPs of all parties in the Times this morning on their views on key social values.
A total of 128 MPs were included and were made up of 70 Labour, 39 Tories, 13 Lib Dems and six others. The sample was weighted to reflect the balance of parties within the House. These are some of the key findings:-
So there you have it – a whole series of areas which should create a lot of passion on CONtinuityIDS website and, of course, in the editorial columns of the Telegraph – which used to be a Tory newspaper.
These areas will surely shape the agenda for Brown to use if he wants to split Cameron from large sections of his party. That looks pretty dangerous for the Tory leader.
For the great power of governments is that they can usually set out what should be the key issues for political debate.
In the general election betting the Labour price on “winning an overall majority” is now tighter than the Tory one.
