This afternoon David Cameron is making what I think might be one of the most important speech of his leadership so far. it's a landmark speech in that it sends out a very clear signal about the direction a future Conservative government will take.
And what is in this speech? Well, a couple of good jokes about distraction burglary and flint-faced accountants, but nothing of any substance. Lots of vague platitudes about doing "more with less" and "tough times".
Jesus, we really are fucked. Cameron hasn't got the balls to do what needs to be done, he's too Blairlite. We don't need Blair, we need a Thatcher or a fucking Churchill.
