The icing on the cake for Team Cameron

Oh dear.  It has been rather a poor week for Our Dave.  First, a little reminder on how it all unfolded.

There was the Ipsos-Mori poll showing the Tory lead down to 6%.  This was followed by the Muslim schools blunder (Michael Gove admitted the inaccuracies on Friday’s Newsnight).  Moving on, we had Cameron’s rather bizarre appearance at the launch of ResPublica - he left after five minutes. 

Now to the icing on the cake.  Stephen Greenhalgh, Tory leader of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, has made some rather tactless comments on the lack of experience at the top of the Tory party:

My mates are all in the shadow Cabinet, waiting to get those [ministerial] boxes, being terribly excited. I went to university with them, they haven’t run a piss-up in a brewery.  They’re going to get a department of state, in one case running the finances of the nation.

One can only assume that he was referring to George Osborne.

They may only be small matters, but there too many mistakes being made. Cameron needs to instil some discipline into his team and the Tory outriders beyond.

It will not take Mandy and Co. long to capitalise on the latest of these unforced blunders.
