AND YOU THOUGHT BILL CLINTON'S SPEECH IN '88 WAS A DISASTER:

Poll shows Cameron is runaway choice (George Jones, 20/10/2005, Daily Telegraph)

David Cameron's bid for the Tory leadership appeared unstoppable last night after a poll for The Daily Telegraph showed that he was the runaway choice of grassroots Conservatives.

When party members were asked their voting intentions, Mr Cameron had a stunning lead over his rivals: 59 per cent said they would want to vote for him compared with 18 per cent for Liam Fox and 15 per cent for David Davis.

Mr Cameron enters today's final round of voting among MPs with a comfortable lead over his two rivals - and close to achieving the support of half the 198-strong parliamentary party.
