Can Cameron win for the Tories?

December 3, 2006 11:09am CST
When I came into this world, there were actually 3 certainties in life. Death, taxes and the Conservative party winning the general election! Since 1997, they have been in opposition and not looked like getting back into power. Now they have a young fresh leader in Cameron who is trying to move the Tories into the "centre ground" but opinion polls arent encouraging. Does he really have a chance against Gordon Brown in 2009?

2009 is a far way off. I think a lot of changes will take place till then. The result f the Iraq war or ratehr the result ofthe continued occupation, will say just how the british election results will emerge.

Good point you make there. The thing is that usually at this point, a government is 10-15 points behind in the polls and they are leading!

I am not sure whether the Tories have it in themselves to actually overhaul Labour and gain power. However, I can see Cameron as a pretty decent PM. Hes a very good speaker, gets his points across well and is generally a decent politician. One thing i find crucial if theyre going to win the next general election is that they must keep to their promises, unlike what Labour have been doing for the past god knows how many years.

Whatever happened to the following: "Education, education, education" (now students have to get into lifelong debts to go to university) and "Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime" (law on the side of the criminal in case their human rights are offended). It will be hard for Cameron to keep to his promises because his policy has been so vague so far. It will be interesting to see how this develops.
