Chris Grayling, presently the Shadow Home Secretary, has had a ‘candid camera’ or, to be more precise, a ‘candid tape’ moment:
I personally always took the view that, if you look at the case of should a Christian hotel owner have the right to exclude a gay couple from a hotel, I took the view that if it's a question of somebody who's doing a B&B in their own home, that individual should have the right to decide who does and who doesn't come into their own home.
Oh dear. This is the last thing the Tories need after a relatively good week. So what to do?
Well, it’s about time our Prime Minister-in-waiting started to prove himself. As Frank Luntz, the man credited for sealing the leadership for Dave back in 2005, correctly points out, Cameron still has much to do between now and 6 May.
He should start by showing some leadership, pluck up the courage and sack Grayling. After all, if the Tories win the election, it’s doubtful Cameron would appoint him as Home Secretary. Step forward one Michael Gove.
