1st weekend of campaign
Judging by the YouGov poll in the Sunday Times showing the Tory lead collapsing, the leadership change-over seems to be playing well with the public.
It certainly is with members - the people I've spoken to this weekend are delighted that we seem to be managing to change leader with a sense of dignity and have a debate without infighting. There is a genuine sense of excitement and anticipation that Brown will unveil a policy agenda that effectively relaunches the government - without junking our hard-won achievements of the last 10 years.
I was personally delighted as a long-term supporter of electoral reform, that according to press coverage of yesterday's Fabian hustings he said he was not opposed to electoral reform as long as it maintained the constituency link.
