The essence of the man.

"If it comes to a collision between our wealth as a nation and the wellbeing of families - I choose families."

 

David Cameron.

 

They are the words of a party leader who truly understands what is important to everyone today. They are also the words of someone who understands that true wealth cannot be counted in money alone.

 

Since David Cameron became leader of the Conservative party he has been pressurised by the extreme right and the media into declaring who he is and what he believes in.

 

It didn’t take a policy, it didn’t take a commission or a group of men in suits sat around a table taking for hours to conjure up a false belief or statement, it didn’t take spin or an Alistair Campbell - it took one sentence for everyone to know the essence of the man David is – the one at the top of this page.

 

****

 

Remember the scene from Winnie the Pooh when he eats too much ‘Hunny’ in the house at Pooh corner and becomes so big he gets stuck and is bulging out of the window  – and piglet has to push and push…

 

Trying to condense a number of houses into two smaller ones is a bit like that.

 

This is not a good day.

So what does Hilton get paid £276,000 for if not to sit around (or run around) and dream up what Cameron can do and say to promote/spin himself to the British public?

Fair point.Would you believe those words if they fell from Blairs lips? Neither would I. As far as I know Steve Hilton is ploughing his way through thousands of policy ideas which are being generated by the policy commissions, and even if he was behind the ethos, there is no doubting that it's an ethos David Cameron is passionate about. All politicians have advisers, otherwise they wouldn't be able to see the wood from the trees - get the best I say, because running the country deserves the best brains working on it money can buy. We have seen what a mess can be created by Mandy, Campbell et al.

Why don't you 'tart' yourself to a publisher - you would write a fab book, but get the politics market as well ?

'It's the Well Being of the Family, Stupid' - sweetie you are bright and intelligent, and I'm afraid I don't believe you will see that concept pass it's first 'contact with the enemy' - come on now, this is hyperbole. You're too smart to fall for believing this.

Folks, why bother with policies if you are so far ahead in the opinion polls ?!

It takes an old Etonian with a million pound house in Notting Hill to fail to understand that the first element of the wellbeing of families is their own economic security and stability.Benevolent paternalism has returned to the top of the Tory party.
