i dont think its all that bad for the conservatives...they've been called unelectable many times, but they still managed to poll more votes than any other party in england in this election just past even with howard as leader and his association with thatcher/old school tory/dracula
. fair enough it didnt win them many more seats, but they are definately moving upwards...
and 4 or 5 years is a long time. even if nothing really happens any of the parties other influences could totally swing it. if the economy goes a bit loopy then blair and brown could find themselves dumped faster than faeces down the drain pipe.
the best thing the tories could do is bring back hague as leader. he'd mop the floor with blair and brown at the despatch box. he was really a victim of timing when he was first leader, the tories were at their lowest and no leader would have done any better. advantages for him would be his age, the fact he has the experience from previous elections, and he'd be coming back to a party in far better shape than when he first took over.
