Maybe circumstance was against Lab and has favored the Tories but I really don't think that come the election that will cut much mileage with the general public. Whatever cards either had the result was Lab ended in a period of doom and the guys in charge are tainted by it. If you can list 3 things the Tories have done badly that would register with the average man in the street I would be really impressed.
In the scheme of things the Scottish aren't that relevant but up in the north west I would say that he struck a chord with his 'English votes on English issues' phrase. Not sure how it plays out down south but up here people seem sick of concessions to Scotland that seem to favor them over the regions. Ed has been very weak on this and his not want to create two tiers of MPs means nothing at all to anyone not very well versed in politics.
