People will argue that the demonstrably incompetent Gordon Brown a man who made anti intellectualism a goal of government was thrown out because he was not likeable. This is clearly not true. People take the least risk or when they feel there is no perceived risk then maybe it’s a beauty contest that the despicable Blair beat Major in. At the time Blair was not the broken gibbering clown he is now flouncing a massive income off the world’s mass murderers but a vibrant bouncey character for a Britain seemingly reviving culturally and economically. Blair also promised economically to be the Tories without the nasty rhetoric at single mothers, ethnic minorities and the Europeans – all of which Labour under Brown became when their bubble economics burst. The Tories now use PFI, Bailouts and funny money bubbles as much as Labour.

The point is that whilst people distrust Govt most will vote for the most competent sounding in this time of crisis. Thus  Blair when it was his duty became unpopular propagating others wars. I do believe that it was his weak conformist nature and lack of character rather than a conscious decision to do something stupid. Similarly Obama who has gone from joyous crowds to the sad pathetic pariah in Germany in 5 years when it was time to back the wars and control freakery he caved and within days of taking over.

However popularity counts for nought. Paint your opposition as incompetent and you’re in. At present Cameron faces a grim opposition of chancers called Ed and has even seen the Tories double support in the Under 30s – those not prejudiced by the hateful bigotry of the Thatcher years.

Ironically for John Major the perceived comfort of Britons such that Tories fought over Europe and to satisfy their own venality were the reasons he lost. Hard times may actually be good for business especially as the poor and intelligent switch off from the rhetorical crap of the main parties leaving the nasty, selfish and stupid middle to vote.
