Is Cameron just a Bad Prime Minister....?
He argues that Cameron fails to recognise the seriousness of issues until too late or mishandles them once he addresses them.
i) he was slow to react to the summer riots in our cities.
ii) ditto with phone hacking allowing E£d Miliband to grab some good publicity by condemning Murdoch.
iii) Liam Fox was allowed to twist in the wind too long before he was sacked- rather as brown dithered over Peter Hain when he should have acted. Blair, by comparison acted promptly and relatively ruthlessly, even sacking his best friend Mandelson
iv)Over the euro crisis he needlessly angered EU partners by lecturing them on how they should act. And when he needed support, it wasn't there.
Interesting thesis I reckon, which has much to commend it, unfortunately for the country perhaps.
Thanks for this. I'm inclined to agree with you. I daresay Vince and company would too. But I'm astonished at how much support there is for his veto as evidenced in Times Populus poll yesterday.
Don't you read the British newspapers?! I'm told (by them) that we have the best press in the world so it must be true...
(I was even forced to agree with G Monbiot's piece in the Manchester Guardian this week. Alas, as usual, he's v good at identifying issues (especially the bleeding obvious (© Basil Fawlty)) but hopeless at producing any workable solutions.)
Defence of Brown is hilarious. Ruthlessly sacking Mandy...and then er, bringing him back?
