Good speech from Cameron.
Measured and calm and full of resolve. He had the now obligatory back story too. I expect come the leaders debates all three will be telling us 'whatever happens I've had a great time and its been a wonderful journey and I'm so proud of me family..'
So good.. good plus even. If not great.
For me the real eyeopener was old blondie, Boris Johnson.
For the first time I could see it. Not just as an MP or as the London Mayor, but as a party leader. I could see people saying '..well..I like him..so I'd vote for him.'
A very good, showy, funny and flamboyant speech from Boris Johnson.
He has that knack of making politics accessible. Miliband, in his well received speech, said 'One Nation' every 95 seconds to try to make his point.
Boris says "Hobnobs and Marks and Spencer' and we all get it instantly.
Democrats wrote Reagan off as a shallow movie star. Arnie was 'a no talent Austrian bodybuilder.'
Clint Eastwood couldn't be a town mayor because he had no political base and no executive training...and he was thought to favour shooting perps over due process!
And that was before today's ever more celebrity obsessed, reality life, vote on/vote off, networked pick n' mix culture.
