Dead Men Left

Speaking of Tories... did anyone else catch that strange interlude on Newsnight yesterday? Some opinion pollster/political advisor/merchant of corruption and evil had rounded up a bunch of Tories and potential Tories who, quite contrary to opinion polls elsewhere, collectively booed and hissed Ken Clarke before swooning at the sight and sound of David Cameron's platitudinous speeches. There we go, concludes Mr Focus Group, David Cameron should be leader. All very odd; does Cameron have a chum on the Newsnight team?
