Paul Waugh has the story that Cameron will not be interviewed by Jeremy Paxman next Monday. Gordon Brown now has the prefect excuse not to show up the following week.
As Waugh says, Cameron will be defying tradition but there is something else. Cameron should be proving to voters that he can handle these one-to-one forensic interviews.
If Brown does go ahead and performs well, Cameron will be left exposed and his judgement will be questioned.
The Prime Minister-in-waiting has made the wrong decision.
