I was at an event last night with fellow Conservative Party parliamentary candidates. David Cameron spoke to us for a few minutes and I was struck by the contrast of his message on the economy with that of Gordon Brown’s.
Whilst Gordon Brown talks endlessly about the global economy, the credit crunch, and the world economic downturn, David Cameron actually addresses the day-to-day concerns of all of us; the cost of filling the car with petrol, higher utility bills, rising food prices and the impact of higher mortgages payments. It is clear to me that Gordon Brown doesn’t really understand how the economic problems we face as a country are hurting all of us each day. He seems instead only concerned with ensuring that any blame for the problems are laid elsewhere and not at his door. The British people expect a little more leadership, insight and answers after 11 years of living in Downing Street.
