Vote blue, get green

Dave the ChameleonMichael Portillo thinks that Labour is making a mistake in attacking David Cameron as a chameleon:

Until Cameron went wheel-less on the Norwegian ice, the pictures of him arriving at parliament on his bicycle had been the most successful piece of political propaganda for years. One snapshot of his two-wheeler on our front pages suggested that he is young, unpompous, unaffected by success, keen to keep fit, concerned about the planet and a Tory leader like no other. Six messages from one photo is good going. So the last thing that Labour should do is remind the public that Dave rides a bike.

Is Dave the Chameleon related to Ken the Newt?!

UPDATE: Andrew Rawnsley shares Portillo's view.
