Last Thursday night´s by-election results were a tremendous fillip to Labour and an appallingly bad result for Davıd Cameron. Coupled wıth weekend polls placıng Labour at 40% or more, it suggests that the Cameron bubble has burst. Of course, events may have their impact, but I tend to agree wıth those who think the results of the Tory policy reviews will be a headache rather than a help for Cameron. After all, the Tories couldn´t even agree on no new grammar schools, a policy that had been a mere shibboleth under Margaret Thatcher´s and John Major´s leadership.
