The "great shell game"

Come on in, the water's warm! Yes to this Martin column today: "The myth of Tory economic performance."

Can the myth be sustained in coming years? Are times about to get rockier? Some headlines from today to consider: "Banks rolling back mortgage discounts," "Customers feel the pinch as banks cut risks."

Never underestimate the herculean public relations efforts of multiplying Conservative communications staff and the assists from those sympathetic media outlets. But such columns as the Martin one give a person hope.
