So, the public has spoken and they don't fancy Dave all that much after all. His poll lead has slipped to 6% as people look at what he's offering and are starting to decide that if they're going to get the same old shit, they may as well get it from the old colostomy bag.
If you look at the Tory party, you see a curious dichotomy: their policies preach "localism" and "choice" and devolved power, but the leadership of the Tory party is the ne plus ultra of highly centralised control. DING is going to be another Blair, with his "sofa cabinet" meetings where a tiny coterie of loyalists will make all the decisions and the rest of his party will just be lobby fodder. It will be the same as what Gordon offers, possibly with less violence and insanity, but DING isn't offering any kind of alternative.
So why would you vote for him?
