Now there are two ways to identify a political campaign that is going down the toilet.
1 It talks about a need to energise its base.
2 It needs “a polling disaster on the scale experienced in Britain at the 1992 election“.

“a polling disaster on the scale experienced in Britain at the 1992 election”
Many people believe Neil Kinnock shot himself in the mouth with that disastrous pop-star appearance at Labour’s Sheffield Rally.
Interestingly, the authors of The British General Election of 1992 are convinced that Mr Kinnock (as he then was) bounded on-stage whooping “You’re all ri’, you’re all ri’”. He actually expostulated “We’re all right!” and twice reiterated the warcry for bad measure, clearly enunciating the final consonant. Doubters can visit YouTube for verification, which of course Messrs Butler and Kavanagh were unable to do. However, if ever one needed confirmation never to take as gospel anything one reads, even a bible of psephology, here is an excellent example.
I cannot believe a politician of such reserved personality as Ed Miliband will in 2015 repeat Lord Kinnock’s monumental misjudgement. Should he be foolish enough to do so, he will not be all right, he will not be all right, he will not be all right.
By the bye, what is this Romney campaign all about? Is he a candidate in the Corby by-election?
