Good Week, Bad Week 03/07/11…

Good Week

David Cameron- The Prime Minister has had a so so week this week. A poor performance at Prime Minister’s Questions and trouble over benefit reforms should have spelled disaster for Cameron this week, but all the pressure was yet again on his opposite number over his bizarre interview recorded on Thursday. This Parliament  is currently about the ineptitude of the opposition at this point and unless the narrative changes Cameron will keep on having good weeks.

Nick Clegg- The Deputy Prime Minister has has a great week this week attending various sporting events such as Wimbledon. Not much on policy however.

Yvette Cooper- Cooper has been impressive  this week fighting for her beleaguered leader. The question still remains however, if the Labour leader role did become vacant in the near future would she stand against her husband?

Bad Week

Ed Miliband- Miliband is becoming a liability for Labour. Condemning the  strikes this week alienated the left of his party, and his strange interview where he repeated himself constantly was frankly horrific. These PR blunders are making the decision to elect him as leader seem more foolhardy by the day. I still feel Miliband has a fifty-fifty chance of being Labour leader in 2015.

Philip Hammond- The usually considered Hammond had a bit of a shocker on Question Time this week, stumbling to find a coherent attack line against the opposition on numerous subjects.

Mark Serwotka- The head of the PCS union was in his usual overblown combative mode this week over the strikes. I doubt this approach gained much sympathy for the strikers however.
