Heir to Blair

Nick Alexander BBC poltical correspondent made me laugh out loud at this...

After a year being described as the "heir to Blair" - with or without his encouragement - Tory leader David Cameron has launched a concerted attempt to throw off the label in the face of an apparent backlash from party members and not a few MPs.

Mr Cameron insists he is not copying New LabourSo, Mr Cameron and shadow ministers such as David Davis and William Hague are out and about stressing that the idea they are copying New Labour is patent nonsense.

They are, they insist, simply learning from New Labour's mistakes.

They would never, for example, find themselves stealing slogans such as "traditional values in a modern setting", would they?

Of course not. In fact, according to their latest press release, they have a shiny new slogan all of their own.

"Conservatives are applying our traditional values to new challenges," it declares.

So, look out for "tough on crime, equally robust on the causes of crime", perhaps.
