The Prime Minister appears to have done nothing wrong, though he has mishandled the Blairmore Holdings allegations. Here’s how Downing Street could do better.
Cameron reflects on his son’s illness during an earlier interview with Radio 4.
Today is the tenth anniversary of his election as Conservative leader – the most electorally successful one in modern times bar Thatcher.
8pm: Very disappointing programme. It served as a neat summary of the ups and downs over the last two years, which is a useful thing for those who don’t follow politics much, but it added nothing new at all apart from its accompanying commentary from the pundits. Cockerell did seem to dwell on the downs […]
David Cameron is on Parkinson tonight – I’ll open a thread once the programme starts at 10.45pm on ITV1. The Tory leader appears alongside Lewis Hamilton, James Blunt and Ian McKellen but doesn’t get a mention in the advance billing for the programme. On the programme David Cameron talks about the time he met Kate […]
Just gone live, David Cameron talking to YouTube’s News & Politics Editor: The five minute interview was taken in sunny Wales (with the sound of lambs and wind in the background!), it covers: Using the internet to get out of political bubbles like Westminster and Washington DC The extent to which young people are interested […]
Peter Hitchens presents a one hour documentary on Channel 4 tomorrow evening (8pm) about David Cameron. In today’s Mail on Sunday he gives a taste of what to expect: "Rather than risk being in opposition too long, Tories have for most of the past 60 years cheerfully implemented largely Left-wing policies, from comprehensive schooling to […]

Newsnight has commissioned a painting of the infamous Bullingdon Club photograph of David Cameron, Boris Johnson and their other Oxford contemporaries. The photo of the members of the Bullingdon Club – which Newsnight describes as "the elitist Oxford University dining club whose public school members have become notorious over the years for vandalising restaurants and […]
David Cameron has just been taking questions from callers to Radio 4, here are his paraphrased answers: Proud single mother with two successful children: What is the 21st Century Conservative Party attitude to single mothers? DC: Huge admiration, but evidence across society suggests that children do better with both a mother and father bringing them […]
When the news of David Cameron smoking cannabis at Eton broke yesterday evening I decided it was not much of a story and only mentioned it within another thread (about today’s Sunday Times opinion poll). I questioned my judgment this morning as I scanned the front pages at my local newsagent. The Mail on Sunday, […]
Iain Duncan Smith used to frustrate his advisers by refusing to conduct any photo opportunities with his children. His advisers wanted these photographs to prove that he was a family man but he insisted that his four children had not chosen public life and he was not going to give the media any excuse to […]
Interesting – if trivial – feature in this morning’s Mail on Sunday on the regularity with which David Cameron wears a green tie and a lime green tie, in particular. MoS journalists James Tapper and Glen Owen estimate that the Conservative leader has worn his lime green tie (the right two of the above images) […]
