The official text lingo for Tory MPs discussing the post-Cameron age appears to be “AD” for “After Dave”.
“Won’t it be nice when we will be able to do all sorts of right-wing stuff, AD.”
“Who are you backing, AD? I’ve always liked that Owen Paterson”.
Even the most loyal of loyalist Cameroons concede that should Dave scrape through in 2015, he would be hard pushed to survive the inevitable party split triggered by a referendum two years later.
