Sorry Tail

Cameron has seen the error of his ways and realised that he is very low down on the agenda at the Royal Wedding and should not use State occasions for tacky political gimmicks. After confirming to James Forsyth at the weekend that the PM would not be wearing a tail coat at the wedding, a spokesman reaffirmed the lounge suit line to Reuters yesterday. Since then the PM has been attacked by pretty much everyone, including Boris, with the Telegraph particularly heartbroken. It’s no surprise then that No.10 have had one of those “fix this quickly” whispers in Ben Brogan’s ear this morning:

“Of course he’s got to wear tails. He knows that. He’s the Prime Minister, it’s the Royal family, there will be foreign dignitaries present and it is only right that he dresses for the importance of the occasion,” 

The source went on to stress that Dave hadn’t been properly consulted and blamed a spinner. Seems this is another episode where the chance to pull off a cheap gimmick has been totally misjudged in terms of the public mood and it has subsequently unravelled. Commonsense, duty and politeness 1, Steve Hilton nil.
