A growing rebellion within Tory grassroots is revealed in a members panel survey by the ConservativeHome blog and leaked in advance to the Observer. Tim Montgomerie says while there is growing unrest, there is no appetite for a change of leader.
The Observer also reports on the analysis of Cameron’s first year as Tory Leader: American political consultant Frank Luntz warns that Cameron is
“one poorly conceived stunt from disaster…”Meanwhile, an ICM poll for the News of the World gives the Conservatives a 9% lead over Labour, but suggests that Cameron is focusing on the wrong issues and that Gordon Brown would make a better Prime Minister.
In tune with Cameron's "hug-a-hoodie" and "love-a-lout" initiatives, The News-of-the-World sums it all up in their headline: Nightmare for Cam the Cuddly.
