One of the things that got me thinking about the strategic problems of the Tory party is that I’ve just written a longish article about the Tory strategy for victory in the next election.
Said article concludes that it looks pretty hard, though not impossible, and would require appealing to substantial new chunks of the electorate to be really successful.
The article is for Progress, and you can read it online here.
If I say so myself, despite being a fairly straightforward take on the Tories electoral strategy, it’s pretty interesting on the surprising strength of the LibDems in local government, given the upcoming Eastleigh by-election.
Odds that the Lib Dems hold the by-election on Local election day are pretty high, I should guess.
