Sometimes you have to feel sorry for David Cameron. Well it is the Christmas season after all, and so it is that not only physically does he get dragged through the mud (and boy does he not miss a trick with getting press attention, if haphazzardly at times) , he also does not seem to get a grip on his Party after three years in the job, as Geoffrey Wheatcroft points out well.
The problem is not just bad PR though, it's bad judgement. Already we have had David Cameron showing appalling lack of judgement over his choice of friends within the Conservative Party, and more recently we have had the sorry tale of the antics of Conservative Party Treasurer, Michael Spencer, whom I understand Cameron has yet to condemn.
And this is the man who wanted to show a change in British politics when he became leader! How does this man hope to become Prime Minister. I personally like to see opponents one can respect, it is difficult for me at least to respect David Cameron.
