What has David Cameron been smoking?

That was Matthew Oakeshott's response to the Conservative leader's assertion that you couldn't get a cigarette paper between our policies.

Tony Greaves picked up a Guardian leader on the same subject: "You are right to suggest that David Cameron is a 'false friend' (Editorial, 21 September). His suggestion that the Liberal Democrats should join with the Tories to create a 'national movement' is as ridiculous as it is sinister-sounding. But it's a significant moment, because it suggests the Tories have given up hope of winning lots of Liberal Democrat seats at the general election, and are now frightened they won't win an overall majority."

Their worries of not being able to achieve an overall majority are shockingly blatant.
They may be well financed but their accountants and strategists are not stupid. If they were confident of a strong showing at the election, they wouldn't be wasting financial resources to the extent that they are, on coming after LibDem seats.
It's actually quite encouraging and shows that Chris Fox and the team are scaring the shit out of them! lol
