From CU's post.
The Tories are going to win on Labour's terms - when they have to enact horrible policy they may end up hated for a generation. Will Cameron's be lucky enough to find his own Falklands before his term runs out?
The cuts are going to be deeper and harsher and probably less fair than the Thatcher years. There won't even be tax cuts to help grow the economy.
The Tory/Lib pact is going to need a get out of jail card. Something to fall back on for an election in 2015.
Margaret Thatcher's Falklands moment was, despite the socialist warmongering propaganda, an unforeseen event And a hugely risky one. Without success in the islands the 1983 election would have been lost. The Falklands changed Britons image of themselves. The end of the sick man of Europe. The start of growth on a par with other European countries that had been absent for 15 years.
But Dave needs a plan in hand. What is the vote winner? What is in that box marked 'Only open in case of emergency', encased in lead and sealed deep in a disused nuclear silo.
What could that plan be?
