Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

Well the Tories must be feeling pretty flattered increasing inheritence tax threshold to £600,000 targeting those tax exempt nationals.
Still Brown took another bruising in the commons today I'm confident he can shake it off but there is no doubt now that last weekend and the nearly election was a total shambles.

Favourite quote still goes to Liberal Democrat treasury spokesman, Vincent Cable, told BBC News 24 that Labour had actually stolen their ideas, rather than Conservative ideas.
He said: "I mean for the Tories to be bellyaching about it, it's like a gang of thieves complaining about their houses being burgled."

Bit of a balls up...

Well the election didn't happen, but I really thought it might for a few days there.
Still it did motivate the activists in Swansea West for a little while and we are definately more finally tuned than three years ago. (not saying much)

For some reason I'm really optimistic about Labour and Brown. I know the honeymoon is over but Cameron is still not PM material yet.

I think providing Brown can continue to mix strategy with honesty he'll be ok.
He needs to swipe some Tory policies while he's at it.
Plus lets not forget 2500 troops are coming home can't be a bad thing can it?
