Tony Blair believes David Cameron has "major strengths" and that Gordon Brown "cannot defeat him", Lord Levy claimed last night. Lord Levy, a close friend of the former PM, revelled in his nickname of 'Lord Cashpoint'
Lord Levy revealed in his memoirs that the former prime minister told him on a number of occasions that he was convinced he could win a fourth term if he had stayed on as Labour leader.
"'But Gordon? He can't defeat Cameron,' Tony told me. Blair believed Cameron had major strengths - political timing, a winning personality and a natural ability to communicate to Middle England that Gordon would be unable ever to match."
