Quentin Davies could be describing Britain rather than David Cameron.
"Under your leadership the Conservative Party appears to me to have ceased collectively to believe in anything, or to stand for anything. It has no bedrock. It exists on shifting sands. A sense of mission has been replaced by a PR agenda.
Although you have many positive qualities you have three - superficiality, unreliability and an apparent lack of any clear convictions - which in my view ought to exclude you from the position of national leadership to which you aspire and which it is the presumed purpose of the Conservative Party to achieve."
Didn't do Tony Blair any harm though, did it ? We get what we deserve.
In related news : Pride in Britain has fallen sharply over a generation, researchers said yesterday. The percentage of people declaring themselves "very proud" of the nation fell from 55 per cent in 1981 to 45 per cent now. The shift is attributed to younger people being less likely to have the "strong attachment" of older generations, the study by the National Centre for Social Research found. It said generational change had been more rapid in Wales and Scotland than in England, suggesting that young people may be more receptive to appeals from nationalist parties.
Oh deer : Success among stags was judged on the basis of how many fawns they sired.
Hmmm : The number of marriages in England and Wales has slumped to the lowest level on record, it was announced today. The 10% cent fall reversed three years in which an increased number of people had tied the knot. Provisional figures from the Office for National Statistics showed there just were just 244,710 weddings in 2005.
In London the decrease was even more marked, with marriages falling by 35%. The figures follow changes in the law by the Home Office in February 2005 to make it more difficult for non-Europeans to win the right to stay in Britain by marrying.
