The election campaign will start after Christmas - when the voters will start paying attention

There have been some wild polls and wild events over the last few months.

But I have a feeling that the none political public ( aka the voters ) will discount almost everything before 1Jan10 as background noise.

The real election campaign needs to start then. It may seem tempting to wheel out popular policies and initiatives right now - in answer to some of the provocation from Balls or a supposedly independent Family think tank - butour powder should remain dry. The enemy is trying to force us to show our hand, but we should wait.

After the New Year hang over people will start to think about the next year and the next five years and we should make our main moves then to out gun, out think out argue, and yes out spend Labour.
