Heading for defeat, as Diane Abbott recently told a private meeting

Nice try by George Eaton in the New Statesman, but it is not really convincing:  http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/08/tories-lack-discipline-symptom-their-unresolved-identity-crisis

He argues that the Tories are heading for defeat because of their poor image among BME communities.

And yet he also points out "There are still significant numbers of MPs on the opposition side who believe that their party is heading for defeat, as Diane Abbott recently told a private meeting".

If Diane Abbott does not know how the BME communities are likely to behave then it is unlikely that George Eaton does.
