First, David Cameron has no "inner Tory" - the man is a left of centre socialist! Brogan writes that the first duty of any party leader is to get his side into power and on that measure Cameron is impressively successful. Successful? Presented with an 'open goal', courtesy of probably the most incompetent Prime Minister this country has seen for yonks, Cameron put the ball in the net? Brogan continues that Cameron has shown himself to be a natural at the business of governing, decisive when needed, calm, confident, able to delegate and communicate with ease. Decisive? How many 'U' turns has this man done?
"Consult any Conservative MP", continues Brogan. Now just why would we wish to consult any Conservative MP who is more interested in his/her career; who is more interested in conforming with their Whips' wishes in the hope of the personal advancement; who is no more than a paid mouthpiece? Why should we give Cameron, or his compliant MPs, another chance when all both are interested in is the present form of 'democratised dictatorship'? The remainder of Brogan's article is no more than his usual 'Big-up Cameron meme' - which forces me to ask where is the prime source of his income, the Daily Telegraph, or the Conservative Party?
It is understandable that, where Brogan is concerned, one cannot blame him for pursuing a course of career that has been shown to be a 'money-spinner' - namely creating a false scenario, after all is that not which politicians do?
Brogan, your name has 'gone on the list' - and that, unlike a knighthood for services to journalism, is not something you really, really want!
