This weekend Gordon Brown presented the Labour choice for the coming election. He claimed that the Labour Party is "for the many, not the few" - but I don't think that's true.
How can he say that with a straight face when it is the many who have suffered from their irresponsible management of the economy? It is the many who have had their taxes blown on pointless programmes and initiatives, and who will be paying back Labour's debts for years to come.
How can Labour be the party of the many when under their watch it has been the many who have been victims of crime? When it is the many who can't get on the housing ladder, or find a good school place for their children?
Brown asks Britain to "take a second look at Labour", but we've been looking at them for thirteen years and this is what we've seen. It's clear that five more years of Gordon Brown won't change anything.
It's the Conservatives who are now the progressive force in British politics, as I explain in this video. We're not the party of the few - or even of the many. We are the party for everyone.
