According to a piece in the Daily Wail, when asked directly whether he was a Thatcherite, David Cameron replied:
‘No… Other people might call me that. I think the label’s now… it’s slightly become… labels now don’t quite mean what they did then.
‘I was a tremendous Mrs Thatcher supporter… The battles she won were so important for our country, but there are now different challenges and things that need to be dealt with.’
The shock in all this? That some idiot saw fit to ask Cameron if he was a Thatcherite in the first place.
A cursory look at Cameron’s dismal record, his limp behaviour in opposition, his failure to win an election against the most unpopular Prime Minister in living memory, a quick scan of his front bench at the wets he surrounds himself with – especially that treacherous, backstabbing, europhile quisling and plotter-in-chief who worked tirelessly to bring down Thatcher, Ken Clarke – the accelerating departure from conservative principles, the vacuum that exists where conviction should reside, the two-faced rank hypocrisy, and an absence of any connection or empathy with ordinary people… yet some witless fool has the stupidity to ask if he is a Thatcherite?
For crying out loud.
