Aside from that, Osborne dwelt on the familiar touchstones - welfare reform, schools reform, an Office for Budget Responsibility etc. Although it seems to me that the Tories are now taking greater pains to set out just how difficult things will remain for the next government. For instance, there was this observation from the Shadow Chancellor:
"Let's face it: there's no immediate end to [taxpayer support] of [the financial] sector ... and components of it may remain in place for years."
All-in-all, the message is "Change ... but with restrictions imposed by Brown's government". Strategically, it's now important for the Tories to set out what those restrictions might be. Hence the idea of a 'Labour Domesday Book'.
