I don't think that is either fair or accurate. Kinnock worked liked a
dog to make the Labour party electable, and he would have been elected
in 1992 if Mrs.Thatcher's carefully constructed council tax hadn't
removed a small but crucial bunch of labour voters from the electoral
rolls in the ten crucial marginals.
Kinock was up against John Major - not one of the top winners of the
previous century - and some 14 years of inertia. The scandals that
really derailed the Tory bandwaggon were still ripening in 1992, and
the national press were depressingly and dishonestly pro-Tory
throughout the 1992 election campaign. Kinnock still came very close
to becomg prime minister.
Michael Foot was a loser on the level of the present and immediate
incumbents, and Kinnock did a very good job in recovering from that
