And loses badly...
A "Carefully Understated Natural Tory".
Or so Thaddeus Tremayne thinks.
Richard North also lays into DC's Telegraph article here.
I wonder whether Cameron or his advisers will bother to read the comments posted beneath Cameron's article on the Telegraph website...
One article that is worth reading in today's Telegraph is this from Frank Field.
Although I understand how Field joined the Labour Party, and Dave joined the Conservatives, it is really hard to explain why each continues to occupy his respective position in light of today's revealing juxtposition of execreable mumbo jumbo from DC and the highly insightful piece from Field.
Can it really be that spin and nonsense is so much more valued and succesful than wisdom and straight talking?
UPDATE: The Devil has also put his boot in. Eloquently.
UPDATE II: Dan Hannan has also read what Cameron has had to say, and draws a rather optimisitc interpretation from it. But, Hannan asks, "Am I reading too much into one speech?"
His answer: "I don’t think so."
My answer: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
UPDATE III: I have just read Dave's speech. My verdict: incredibly naive.
