He did it!

are the dog days behind him?

It has been a good week for the Tories and something of a triumph for Cameron in that his speech went well and his conference really did herald something of the much vaunted 'Conservative fightback'. If either had gone badly, he would have become politically damaged goods, probably irretrievably and the Conservatives would have entered a general election both split and dispirited. instead activists have a spring in their step and there is a real feeling that should Brown call an election, it is well worth the fight for they may be starting in second place but anything is possible.
Locally the Conservative Association is in quite good shape. I am confident we can have a first 72 hour leaflet printed and delivered across the constituency, most of the wards have a reasonable organization and we even have a small amount of money to campaign with! I wouldn't imagine Alan Whitehead is quaking in his boots but he knows this will be his most testing outing electorally since 19997.

The polls show an increase in both Tory and Labour support since 2005 with a large collapse in Lib Dem support. I expect us to hold both Soton seats easily and for you to win Romsey, Eastleigh and Winchester.
