Cameron on the Conservative Approach to Rising Cost of Living

David Cameron reminds Andrew Marr of a simple truth…

“If you can keep the cost of government down and people’s taxes down, you help them through the cost of living crisis, that’s important.”

Osborne Finally Takes Over from Cameron

Coronavirus has struck down former PM David Cameron, just days before he was set to travel to Jacinda’s prison island of New Zealand, to attend the conference of the centre-right National Party. The party, bracing for an election in 2023 after St Jacinda’s 2020 majority victory, were hoping to hear from Britain’s ex-PM. Now Guido sees George Osborne will finally step into his ex-boss’s shoes after agreeing to fill in.

This morning the National Party leader Chris Luxon argued that centre-right parties worldwide face a perception problem, especially appearing uncompassionate, and said the party wants to “detoxify” itself like the UK Tories did in the 2010 election. Let’s hope Osborne manages to stay Covid-free, or the conference will end up facing Theresa May’s extortionate speaking fees…

Good to See Nadine’s Buried the Hatchet…

An hilarious tweet from Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries this afternoon as she decided to turn David Cameron into a meme. A Mail snap of Mr and Mrs Cameron started going the rounds on Twitter this morning owing to the former PM’s new look. One user joked he looked like he “knows a guy who can fix up your car for £20 and a packet of cigs”. Another that he “looks like every guy stood outside a stadium trying to buy or sell tickets.” Or just like most middle-aged Dads…

Nadine clearly enjoyed this so much she’s now made Cameron the face of her department’s unsound push to crack down on ticket touts:

Finally, sweet revenge from the man who stripped her of the whip in 2012…

Cameron: Boris Can Get Away with Things Mere Mortals Can’t

Guido enjoyed Adam Boulton’s final Sky News programme this afternoon; an hour-long documentary on the relationship between No. 10 and the media. Surprisingly David Cameron agreed to participate, to discuss his own media strategy. In 2010 Cameron tried hiring Andrew Parsons on the public dime to be his official photographer, however media pressure eventually led to their roles being scrapped. Boris has since tried this again, more successfully, now enrolling three No. 10 photographers onto the taxpayer-funded payroll. Commenting on this Cameron joked “Boris has always been able to get away with things mere mortals can’t”…

Boris, Dave and George’s No. 10 Reunion Roast Dinner

Boris, Dave and George reunited in Downing Street last week for the 20th anniversary dinner for the 2001 intake of Tory MPs. As expected, neither Boris nor Dave could resist making a few pointed jokes at the other. In his Spectator Diary Osborne claims he doesn’t remember much from the dinner, though during his toast the PM joked about a “home insulation scheme involving windows that he was going to call Green Sill”. George presumably didn’t ask who’d be funding that particular No. 10 renovation…

Not one to be outsmarted, Cameron joked that “being back in Downing Street had filled him with nostalgia… for the good old days when there was food on the supermarket shelves, you could fill up your car and Tory budgets cut taxes on jobs and businesses.” Unfortunately, as a 2015-er, Rishi wasn’t there to defend himself…
