Dazed and Confused
If you are in the slightest bit concerned with the calibre of the person who will lead this country for the next 4 - 5 years, I urge you to take a glance at this Channel 4 News piece. It's film of David Cameron's interview with a Gay Times journalist, and went out yesterday. I had to watch the middle section between my fingers. Truly - car crash TV.
And as the report makes clear, it vindicates everything Labour has been saying about Cameron and his brand of Conservatism - apparently modern and responsive, but in fact nothing more than a thin veneer. The homophobic (and racist) allies the Tories choose to comport with in the European Parliament give the lie to that.
I simply can't imagine any recent British Prime Minister floundering over his core beliefs in the way Cameron does here. As I shall blog later, their campaign is beginning to fall apart.
