Britain’s Prime Minister is trying to get his election campaign back on track after a battering over Iraq. With the countdown on, Tony Blair has been doing his best to steer the nation’s attention to the government’s strong points Blair first praised Labour’s economic success and then went on to slate Conservative plans.
The Labour’s leader’s 3D image graces the latest campaign poster unveiled by the Conservatives. The centre-right party is likely to be buoyed by an opinion poll showing the public trusts Blair less than Tory leader Michael Howard.
Nonetheless, Howard’s party is trailing four points behind Labour and he is deemed unlikely to win the top job on May 5th. It is much the same story for Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy. Despite a strong performance in an audience question and answer programme which featured both Blair and Howard last night his party is still third in the polls.
Polls which show that despite public grievances with Blair, Labour is still on course to win an unprecedented third straight term in office.
