NEVER SHOW FEAR….Pretty much every analyst in the world thinks that Tony Blair’s Labor party, which currently has a majority of about 160 seats, will cruise to an easy victory when they call the next election. But Iain Duncan Smith, leader of the Conservative party, begs to disagree:

“I am very upbeat,” he said. “Put money on it. We are going to win the next election, I absolutely believe that. I am not bullshitting. It’s right there. This Government is on the edge of complete failure. I promise you.”

How come American politicians aren’t allowed to talk like that?
