NotesNews: 5 Jan: " Lib Dems add 57 varieties to spice up election campaign: Party plots local ground war to avert electoral meltdown by tailoring quest for votes to individual constituencies ... Grant Shapps, the Conservative party chairman, has promised he will show no mercy to the Lib Dems, and up to half of the 40 seats targeted by his party for gains will be seats held by their coalition partners. How Cameron pitches his appeal to damage Clegg is one of the Conservatives' most intriguing political tasks. .... " Patrick Wintour The Guardian

News: "As the coalition plods on, the fight is Labour's to lose: I almost feel sorry for Cameron, relaunching his government for the umpteenth time. Now is the opposition's chance. ... David Cameron, today relaunching the coalition for what feels like the umpteenth time, must hope that similarly, 2013 will fade away in popular memory. That's because this new year is already fated to be one of trudging along, with almost no growth, huge unemployment and stale-sounding political rows, notably over Europe and welfare. ....
