Psychologists Proving Poor Election Pundits

Tony BlairA press briefing was
held in London yesterday in which a few psychologists speculated on the
electorate’s mood. Due to the predictable content, the story only just limped
into the news. Perhaps they should have tried for something a little more
radical than: The war on Iraq was a bit of a problem for Labour but they’ll win
If the Conservative or Liberal
Democrat parties really want to win, they might think about hiring a few
psychologists to do a really cruel dissection of Tony Blair’s character and
behaviour. Then spread it across all the papers and stick it up on all the
billboards in the country. A vicious and sustained character assassination is
their only chance of winning short of an actual assassination.
