Tories give up

I'm one of those people who never think elections are won until the votes are counted and the returning officer has declared. Nevertheless it is a boost to read the Times this morning relating that the Tories are effectively withdrawing from from a number of seats including Cheadle. Lucky Mark Hunter-although I'm sure that he will not give up working hard. There seems to be continuing evidence that the Tory vote in the North is not strengthening in the way it is in some places further south. I suspect that the truth is that in some key constituencies they will not vote Tory no matter how many millions of Ashcroft's money is spent.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
