Lame Duck Cam
There is speculation that David Cameron has had enough.
He turned himself into a lame duck by declaring that he would not serve a further term, and there is of course no further need for him exploit his children for electoral gain.
Whatever Tony Blair did that might now blight his political reputation, he pointedly kept his family out of the political loop.
If Tony Blair can claim the high moral ground, Dave is surely in trouble.
During the election campaign, Cameron never failed to routinely reference the tragic circumstances of his sick child when faced with questions about his intentions for the NHS, but not so after he subsequently broke the promises he made in order to get elected.
Cameron's Tory friendly Sunday Mail has found it necessary to rat on him for sending his son to a private school having made a big deal about sending the other child to a state school albeit a state school in posh Westminster.
If you can afford to live in Westminster, a state school is a posh school by default.
So cynical, so Cameron. Same old Tories.
