Tories build election war chest.

No wonder they want a quick election!

The Conservative Party, nationally has spent the last couple of weeks appealing to Tony Blair to get out of No.10 sharpish and to allow the dour Chancellor, Gordon Brown to take over, then they want a quick election to prove whether or not Brown has a popular mandate.

The polls still show the Tories maintaining a healthy lead over New Labour and perhaps this could be why they are pressing for an early general election - or perhaps there is another reason.

The Labour Party is in a financial mess, donations have stopped arriving since Yates of the Yard started investigating the "cash for peerages" affair and some of the huge loans are now being called in. David Cameron on the other hand is honing his skills at money raising and has become a dab hand at the dinner circuits sliding pound notes into the coffers of the Conservative Party. George Jones the Telegraph's political editor reports today that the party already has a war chest of 21 million pounds put aside, just in case Gordon is tempted!
