The price of cowardice
Cameron's ratings began to slump after he chickened out of his promise to hold a referendum on the surrender of sovereignty embodied in the Lisbon Treaty.
Conversely, Brown's have risen as he has plodded on, shoulders hunched, into the greatest shit-storm I have ever seen envelop a politician.
Anglo-American history is littered with previous examples of politicians who mistakenly believed they could win on the back of their opponents' unpopularity.
Courage is the greatest of all political virtues, because without it nothing else can be achieved.
