Well, I still have no answer. They do want to hold an election (because they think they’d win it), and Cameron today has launched an attack on the Government’s policy to spend money and give tax breaks to combat recession.

In the meantime, a couple of weeks ago the Tory Shadow Health Secretary Andrew Lansley wrote the following on his blog:
“Interestingly on many counts, recession can be good for us. People tend to smoke less, drink less alcohol, eat less rich food and spend time at home with their families.”
