I've known for a few years that Cameron is not popular with the Parliamentary Tory party but revaluations from the memoirs of former Minister of State for Schools David Laws add more meat to the bones , Cameron is said to have called Justice Secretary Michael Gove a "Maoist" and admitted that he was scared Boris Johnson was after his job ... with good reason Dave !
The admissions claimed in the book were made to former Deputy PM Nick Clegg when the Lib Dems were in coalition with the Tories in the last parliament and given more credence by the fact the Memoirs were written by Laws with Mr Clegg's cooperation.


Setting out details of a conversation between the PM and his deputy about Mr Gove, the book states: "Cameron replied to the Deputy Prime Minister's complaints about Gove by saying 'Look, I understand your frustration over this, Nick. Michael does seem to have gone a bit nuts recently. To be honest, I am being driven around the bend by Michael right now. We know he isn't very popular in the country.'

"When Nick complained again after another bust--up with Gove, the Prime Minister laughed. 'The thing that you've got to remember with Michael is that he is basically a bit of a Maoist - he believes that the world makes progress through a process of creative destruction!"'

Creative Destruction ? , sounds like the Tory party in general to me.


"'God, Osborne and Cameron really are desperate for power, aren't they?' Nick Clegg told me in his cavernous office at 70 White-hall, with its extensive views of Horse Guards' Parade, on March 29, 2012," Mr Laws recounts.
"They would sell their mothers to stay in Downing Street. They are petrified of Boris Johnson coming along and challenging them for the leadership."



Mr Laws told how he got "nervous" in the run-up to the 2015 Budget "when it became clear Osborne's proposal to completely abolish the tax on savings income may cost far more than his £800 million estimate".
"I said it was wrong when there were also painful cuts to the incomes of the poorest. Even Osborne admitted it wasn't well targeted. 'It will only really be of help to stupid, affluent and lazy people, who can't be bothered to put their savings away into tax-efficient vehicles! But it will still be very popular - we have polled it'."

Poor Dave , I almost feel sorry for him .... Ha ! no I don't

I await Wednesday to see what pain Osborne has in store for us and how much jam he'll give to his mates.

Part of me can't wait for this prick to hand the reigns over, only in the hope that we get someone the public hates more and maybe sway the vote. but that's my dreaming, another four years of theses #ers, makes me sick to my stomach, even the people who voted for them seem to be regretting it now. All the in fighting going on is quite enjoyable, but at the same time, it's not!

George will be throwing punches wednesday with his right (always at the poor and needy) then offering hollow cupcakes with his left! can't even describe how I despise this bastard!


Gonna be an interesting year!

None of this surprises me, Gove is probably a Maoist but at least he's not destroying the education sector single handily, he's passed that batton on. Johnson is after Dave's job and most back benchers are mad.....this isn't news! :-)

I suspect Theresa May will come out soon and admit what we've known all along, she is really a huminoid reptile here to destroy us all......

So you don't think Labour destroyed the education sector then? I think it has been fairly much eroding it at both the council level and whenever the came into power over the last 30 years of so, but I'm sure you'd rather put up some really puerile slogan on a socialist worker placard as to how it's only the Tory party who are ever to blame for anything wrong in the public services - amazing how those tactics work to bring the stupid on side.

I expect the same from the budget, but absolving responsibility from previous administrations is frankly stupid and narrow minded as it lets in the people who created the mess. Public services were almost fatally damaged by Blair and Brown through the PFI (yes, Major started it, Labour made hay with it), and the way they treated the nations finances like they were a credit card that never ran out of credit. But hey, I'm sure you know best.

Please advise where previous administrations were ignored?

The article is about the Tories? At no point have I made any comment about Labour, positive or otherwise, so please refrain from putting words in my mouth.

Four points...

1. Cameron was voted by the Parliamentary party to lead them, so it's wrong to state he's unpopular with the majority.
2. David Laws is a disgrace. He was caught claiming £40K worth of expenses fraudulently.
3. He lost his seat in 2015 to a Conservative.
4. It's in his interest to dis the Conservatives. He wants his old seat back!

Where did I absolve anyone's responsibility ?



no politician is blameless ... they're all bloody idiots.

Given a choice between the bloody idiots Labour and the bloody idiots Tory I'd still choose Labour .... if I voted which I no longer will do.
Many of the cuts being levied by this Tory government are ideological and have little or nothing to do with putting the countries finances straight which is why public borrowing is still sky high.
