Reader’s Comment of the Day: Cameron has alienated his core vote


In response to Nick Wood: Cameron will have to go much further to win back his ‘disgruntled Tories’, MickC wrote:

Cameron could not manage to win against Brown in the last election.

Cameron cannot win this election, and couldn’t as soon as the redrawing of the boundaries was quashed. The sole hope was that the SNP would eviscerate the Labour vote in Scotland and then not support a minority Labour government. Well, the evisceration will happen, but the SNP will surely support a Labour government.

It is extremely unlikely that he could have won even if the boundaries had been redrawn because he has alienated much of the natural Conservative core vote. Being called fruitcakes and loons is not soon forgot! And certainly, spouting “warm words” at this late stage isn’t going to cut it.

The Cameron experiment has been catastrophic, both for the country and the Party. It is past time it was confined to history.
