A two-horse race

In Chris Huhne, LibDems, Nick Clegg on October 31, 2007 at 3:24 pm

Nominations are about to close for the leadership of the Liberal Democrats, and no-one else has thrown their hat in to the ring.

It is vital for the Lib Dems that they choose the right leader this time around and Gordon Brown and David Cameron will be watching closely as to what ‘bounce’ they get in the polls. Politics in the UK is very volatile at the moment and although a general election is an event far in the future, it is essential that all parties perform well in the polls now. This is how New Labour did it in the 1990s. They were consistently ahead in the polls for years.

From the Conservative perspective, Cameron knows he is in the driving seat at the moment. It is essential he stays there.
