The Conservatives are looking confident and their tails are up. I have very mixed feelings about this. On one hand it pressure the Labour party to actually do vaguely progressive things like offer to up the minimum wage to £5 an hour..on the other hand it could make 'New' Labour ever more reactionary in it's policies towards immigrants and asylum seekers among other things.

The Conservatives have used the imported Australian poll guru Lynton Crosby to work their way to this position. However the
Backing Blair campaign will I think be quietly happy about the narrowing of the polls and the pressure on Blair and 'New' Labour...
