Guardian – Blair is set for a third term – and it’s a chilling prospect: A prominent businessman said to me last week: “You can feel this government cracking up. Everything around Blair feels rotten. The end is in sight.” He is not the only inhabitant of the anti-Labour camp to feel a spring surge of hope. Conservative frontbenchers have been making good speeches and sharp points. There has been much speculation about a Tory revival. I don’t believe a word of it. Much of the country is simply not listening. The strength of the economy sustains a widespread sense of wellbeing, matched by an indifference to all sorts of issues people should care about, but do not. There is amazingly little anger of the kind that provokes electorates to topple governments.
