The Tory Party’s little difficulties are bad enough without Ben Brogan, a so called supporter of Team Cameron, popping up this morning to highlight them:
I know several [MPs] who will take a perverse pleasure in voting against a Cameron administration in revenge for a range of slights, actual and perceived. Some were sacked, many were hammered over their expenses abuse, and a few have never bought into the Cameron version of modernisation.
And talking of slights, Brown is not the only party leader lacking interpersonal skills:
Mr Cameron recently shared a lift with one of his most successful backbench MPs – a politician he once praised as the future face of the party in power – and managed to say not a word, not even hello, for the duration of their shared ride. Trivial, you say? Maybe, but he needs to be making friends, not losing them.
Still, at least the name of the Shadow Cabinet minister who had to be dragged out of a lap-dancing club in a state of alcoholic oblivion a while back never got out.
Heaven help the Tory party. Why, oh why would Brogan wish to highlight that?
Prepare for a shock. Maybe the Telegraph is going to back Brown at the election.
We live in very strange times.
