I think the problem is that it's not just what happened in 2010, but what's happened to the party since then that means we can't take on that role. Even while the European campaign is admirable, I think it comes from that same mentality of 'here's a small group (pro-Europeans) we can target' rather than trying to grow that group and alter the overall terms of the debate. (In political science terms, it's a preference-accommodating strategy rather than a preference-shaping one)

All the messages coming from the leadership aren't showing that our radicalism is going to be allowed out in 2015, in my view. Everything seems based on being moderate, sensible and stronger economy, fairer society. Rather than anything about changing the system, we're just pushing the message that we can help to make it a little bit nicer - supporting the system, rather than disrupting it.
