The Ides of May: Dave Tensions Simmer Over Again

It’s a frequent matter of discussion amongst his more grumpy MPs, but now speculation about a Dave-less post 2015 is boiling over. Here is Adam Boulton yesterday in the Sunday Times:

“Cameron is sure of 10 years as party leader and five as prime minister — perhaps that could be enough for him. Go out fighting on the economy, win or lose in 2015, and on to the next thing. Looking up from the mire of wages and expenses right now, there are few even of his own MPs who think they’d miss him. “

Today the prospect a T-May D-Day is flagged up again by a prominent backbencher to the Times:

“She’s very assiduously courting colleagues. She is holding surgeries in the tea room, listening to colleagues’ concerns. She’s my best hope for the future.”

Over Christmas party season, Guido has heard more than his fair share of Tory MPs ranting and raving about the prospect of another coalition. There are those that do not see Dave surviving anything but a majority win.
