This Week's Carnival of Revolutions:
Carnival Home Base:
Tony Blair's Labour Party.
A quick British election poll roundup:
The ICM poll for the Sunday Telegraph gave Labour its largest lead so far with a 40% share of the vote, a full 10 points ahead of the Conservatives and enough to give Tony Blair a majority of more than 150 seats....
All-in-all, a mixed bag. Overall, though, Tony Blair and the Labour Party are right where they want to be against the feckless Conservative Party.
Think "feckless" is a little harsh?
Then you haven't seen the Tories' lame campaign posters.
Think "lame" is a little much?
Well, see for yourself:
Campaigning on hospital germs?
John O'Sullivan has more in National Review on the Conservative Party's failure to effectively articulate conservative principles:
...the Tories have to challenge and demystify all the soothing myths of Official Britain in defense of the common sense and economic realities of Market Britain.
This is precisely why we can, with a clear conservative conscience, support and root for a Tony Blair victory. The undeniable truth is that Tony Blair has been on the right side of history, time and time again, standing with the United States when it would have been politically expedient to sell President Bush down the river on Iraq.
Democrats could learn a thing or two from Tony Blair about being on the right side of history. Left-wing American pundits have been salivating over the potential of an Iraq-based Blair loss since before the commencement of the invasion. For American liberals, taking Blair down could be a moment of transference, a cathartic healing ritual.
If Tony Blair survives the upcoming election, in the context of John Howard's and George W. Bush's victories in Australia and the United States, respectively, it will signal to the remaining terrorist insurgency in Iraq that the free world is united behind the spread of liberty in the Middle East. Blair's victory would reassure otherwise ambivalent poll-watching heads of state that it is okay to support the United States in the drive for democracy around the world.
Patrick Ruffini has more on the poor Conservative Party campaign:
I want to bring to your attention this shameful advert from the Tories, to be shown in movie theatres across Britain. It uses the WMD issue and Bush footage to attack Blair. Sure -- I'd expect this kind of crap from the Liberal Democrats, but not from the Conservatives. Sadly, I was mistaken. It's pure desperation, and another reason for American conservatives to back Labour on 5 May.
So, still wondering for whom you would/should vote?
You could always take this quiz on the subject.

I just took a glimps of that quiz. Should fox hunting be a crime is rather interesting? Are The PETA people Big in the UK too? Funny questions...
