I am hardly surprised that David Cameron has won the leadership of the Conservative Party.
I cannot avoid feeling that the Tory Party has taken a long hard look at why the Labour government has been in power for so long.
Labour has a charismatic middle-aged man in power, one who unifies the party, and the Tory Party wish to emulate this.
It would seem that the time has come for the Tories to develop a Blair clone who can unify the party and project a youthful image to the voting public.
They want someone who will be the face of the New Conservatives.
He will have a hard job unifying his own party, but David Cameron may well be a threat to Labour as he is a charismatic man who the Conservatives hope can win them support with the voting public.
It will be a difficult role for him to fulfil but, with the support of his fellow Conservatives, he should be able to lead the party well and may even be a threat to Labour at the next election.
