Could British politics be about to become interesting and competitive?
The Tories have chosen David Cameron as their leader, and by a very healthy, if not overwhelming margin - the result I've no doubt that Labour most feared. Equally, if sites such as Once More are to be believed, the result that many Tories most feared.
He'll need a cool head over the next few months to avoid the pitfalls that Labour and the media will be preparing for him. But this could just, just be the beginning of the end of Labour dominance in British politics. Or it could be the start of yet another dreadful Tory leadership period. But my guess is that the former is a more likely outcome than the latter. Not that the thought gives me much cheer.
Perhaps Cameron's biggest challenge will be to rally his own troops and keep the Tory party unified. Given the amount of vitriol poured on him by many Tory foot-soldiers on the Internet, it will in all likelihood be a tough task.
