By nominating themselves as the main spokesmen for the EU referendum IN-vote, Cameron and Osborne have made a gross error of judgement.
Not for reasons of personality or presentation skills – those are abundantly evident 🙂 – but because they have come to believe their own publicity.
Let’s spell it out: The Conservatives did NOT win the last General Election either because they were liked or even because voters believed their rather flaky economic predictions and even flakier claimed economic achievements.
They were elected because the alternative (Miliband) was TOO horrible to contemplate. It was not Sir Lynton Crosby who won them the 2015 General Election, it was Ed Miliband.
There aren’t enough high-viz jackets, hard-hats or factory production lines in the country to convince the average British voter that there is some sort of “connect” between themselves, DC or his sidekick.
Cameron and Osborne should stop all the nonsense of posing among ‘ordinary’ workers in factories owned by aspiring ‘Sirs’ and spouting their dystopian EU piffle.
They should both go back to Downing Street and wait.….and a couple of phone calls to Pickfords wouldn’t go amiss either!
