Iíll put you in driving seat, says David Cameron
...and could you wait outside Harrod's while I fetch some groceries? Leave the engine on.
The EU = China 1989
This appears to be Daniel Hannan's latest point
On the referendum (a bad idea although one I think the pro-treaty faction would win) I don't really understand the issue about Cameron breaking his 'cast-iron' guarantee of a referendum. He's been hinting that he wouldn't hold one if it had been ratified since the day he made the pledge. I think the worst that can be said was that he was too cowardly to admit explicitly that it was only if it hadn't already been ratified, and has avoided making a policy because of an eagerness that something might turn up. A ditherer, but that's no bad thing.

David has just sent me another unwanted email, in which he refers to the Prime Minister twice as simply 'Gordon'. Isn't that a bit unusual? He also capitalises 'party', as in "if you want... a Party with guts", which I find a bit creepy.
On his time at Eton, he said: 'When I was 14, 15, 16, I was doing things that teenagers do ... drinking too much, being caught having the odd fag, things like that.
This can't be right. Fagging was abolished
at Eton in July 1980, when Cameron would have been only 13. Shades of Wor Jackie
I'm glad David Cameron has got his bike returned. When he was pacing up and down and demanding Sharia law, I had visions of him becoming London's version of The Batman, a mild-mannered Leader of the Opposition by day, and caped vigilante crusader by night.
Peter Hitchens on David Cameron
Did you watch it? The two main things I got from it was that Peter Hitchens is very droll, and Michael Gove is going to go much further. Other than that, I didn't really understand Hitchens' argument. Sometimes he appeared to be arguing that Cameron actually believes all the things Hitchens' believes in, but was pretending not to in order to get power, and that was a bad thing, and at others that Cameron had jettisoned all of those views and there was nothing but the 'centre ground'.
