Tories fly off in all directions

At the Conservative press conference this morning, everything is clear.

Michael Howard says there is no truth in reports that senior MPs, including Shadow Cabinet members, have asked him to tone down his rhetoric.

Liam Fox says “one or two malcontents” are unhappy with the focus on immigration in the campaign.

No contradiction there then.

Afterwards I tag along when they hurry to the heliport to fly to Peterborough.

As the rotors start to spin there is a horrible grinding noise and clouds of blue smoke billow out across London.

"I think we should get the train," says Howard.

"We shall fly on to victory in this machine," says Fox, as the engine explodes. "We don't listen to malcontents."
