Blair on Cameron, Brown on Davis

I have spent quite some time recently, on, arguing against those card-carrying members of the Guardian and Independent-reading tendency there, which seems to believe the only route to power for the Conservatives is to please voters just like them. As I am wont to remind them, there are a lot more floating voters out there than there are hard-core left-liberals, and working to persuade the former is likely to be a more productive use of time.

That is not to say, however, that the views of professional politicians who do have to win votes and elections, and so to understand the mind of the floating voter, is to be ignored. In that light, Matthew D'Ancona's Telegraph piece - on how Blair, Brown, their camps, and other Labour MPs are viewing the Tory leadership contest - is extremely interesting and illuminating.
