'No return to the Conservative comfort zone'

With Cameron's promise of 'no return to the Conservative comfort zone' the Tory lead in the polls is up to, er, 2%.

Comments on Toby Young's piece in the Telegraph reveal something of a consensus amongst DT readers.

Hey ho.

I think YouGov had it at 4% last night, but it's not exactly mind-blowing either way.

Well there'll be no return to the comfort zone for Cameron anyway.

He's heading for being the minority leader in a hung parliament, followed by unceremonious dumping by his party.

I have commented elsewhere that the interesting budget could be either the Darling or Balls Emergency Budget of July.

The Tories have thrown away a win because Cameron refuses to listen to ex-Tory voters who despair at his "heir to Bliar" rubbish.

Even his refusal to have a Lisbon treaty referendum was not the fundamental reason for the Tories withering on the vine, though it contributed. It is a combination of lack of rigour and vigour on five basic issues: the economy; the EU; AGW (inc power generation); sleaze; and civil liberties.
