Cameron’s Flustered Interview

Sky’s Joey Jones is risking being crossed off Dave’s Christmas card list by broadcasting an unedited piece in which a tired Dave shows resentment at a line of questioning. Jones makes a bit of a meal of Cameron getting flustered. Dave looks tired and was clearly pissed off with the unexpected line of questioning. (Guido’s tip, in a recorded interview, if it is going badly, break into a coughing fit and ask “can we do that again?” – buys time.)
The line of questioning was basically “Don’t you like the Conservative Party?” “What’s wrong with the current Conservative party?” “Aren’t Conservative voters going to be unnerved if you are obsessed with changing it?”
Over on GMTV, Liam Fox seemed to be making a coded hint to the Tory Right. He warned that if the party “tilted too much in any one direction” it would be destabilised. He held up the Thatcher regime as a successful broad coalition and praising Thatcher nowadays constitutes clitoral tickles for the right. Fox is miffed with being stuck with defence, he feels that his strong showing in the leadership elections entitles him to more. Clearly he is signalling that if it all goes wrong, he didn’t buy into the Cameron Project.
