Hardly flushed with success, eh?


Hunter takes great pride in mocking the Dim Lebs. It has almost become a hobby - up there with keeping guinea pigs, blogging and partying. But I'm almost feeling sorry for them! This week, in case you haven't noticed, they are meeting in Brighton for their annual conference. There has been little reporting on it - and the coverage that they have received has been negative. The problem, in my view, is twofold: they have an old man as their leader who is a good pal of Gordon Broon. In the event of a hung-parliament, which is likely, he will prop Labour up in the Commons if he's still there). And they are a bitterly divided party - they can't decide if they are for a free-market and socially libertarian society or want to be party of big government.

In May, they made a net loss of over 200 seats. Their poll ratings are hovering at 15% (or below), but they living in a bubble. They think everything is hunkey dorey.

Wake up and smell the organic coffee: you're in trouble - big trouble!

The Lib Dems an anti-London party. Ming says he wants to "hammer" any families where the household income exceeds £68,000 a year. No-one doubts £68,000 is a lot of money. But with London's property prices and the price of childcare, a family earning that much still might have a relatively small disposible income.

So, in London and across the South East, I think the Lib Dems are the ones who are going to get a hammering. And what fun it will be!
