NotesNews: "Here we go again, and it's not just the desperately optimistic rightwing press. There is a Westminster tearoom murmur that all things considered, the Conservative party has done the right thing at last. They chose a "grown-up", as Malcolm Rifkind flatters on these pages. Wait a minute. Howard may have hair, no speech impediment (beyond an inability to say the word peepul), and is not a brainless buffoon. He may have a certain air of authority and a barrister's skill at the dispatch box, but Michael Howard is one of the most unpopular men in British politics today. Our poll last week showed that 26% of voters were even less likely to vote Tory under Howard than under IDS. That's why he came fifth to William Hague. But, hey, never mind, really hardline Tories like him, and he's the best talent they've got on their front bench. How low has a party sunk when it regards Michael Howard as their white knight? ..."
