Having spent months denouncing Miliband's energy price freeze as a "con", the Tories, spooked by the opposition's poll lead, are now trying to match it.
Those urging the party to avoid radical talk of reforming capitalism and remaking society fail to understand the deep-rooted wish for change.
The party reveals that it has recruited over 100 full-time organisers in key target seats, more than at any time in the 1997 election campaign.
The Labour leader accused the Tories of an "intellectual collapse" after their U-turn on payday loans but as Cameron knows, the wise Conservative travels light.
The Chancellor is right that people don't demand ideological consistency but they do like politicians to believe in something.
Across the world, unflashy candidates are triumphing against their allegedly charismatic counterparts.
The Chancellor's announcement of a cap on payday loan charges undermines the coalition's attack on the Labour leader's "Marxist universe".
The success of the next Labour government is dependent on the left learning to read something before developing an opinion on it.
The Labour leader should resist those urging him to take the incrementalist path and offer fundamental reform of the economy and the state.
A poorly-judged tweet from Tony McNulty and the misdeeds of the Reverend Flowers meant Cameron ended Miliband's winning streak.
