Mike Smithson at Political Betting notes the support of the Daily Mail and the Telegraph for Cameron’s bleatings about law and order, and wonders if this spells the end of cuddly Dave.
But isn’t Cameron simply following in the footsteps of his predecessors – when the going gets tough you swing to the right? How’s this going to go down with the centre ground voters who have moved in his direction since he took over?
Sounds like good news for the Lib Dems to me. I particularly liked this comment from someone signing himself as grumpy-old-man…
Yep we’re back, Hague when he became leader, sang from the Cameron song sheet, when it didn’t work, soon reverted to type, its just laughable. When any politician talks about crime and how they are going to ’solve it’ I look at my fingernails, look at the ceiling, out of the window, anywhere but at them.
