“Respectful” lull in electioneering: cynical excuse to re-establish strategy?

I’m not religious so my thoughts on this may offend (you have been warned!) but it occurs to me that the Pope dying may be just what the Tories need right now. With the whole Howard Flight situation getting more and more entrenched Michael Howard needs a few days with different headlines. Neo Labour may of scored a short term victory with the Flight sting operation (apparently a result of their Operation Black Watch) but the Tories had real momentum up until Flight-gate.

Perhaps a death of a Pope is useful for all party strategists to pause for thought, re-establish themselves and their agenda?
