Major delivers "kiss of death" to Cameron
David Cameron has defeated David Davies in the election for the Conservative Party Leadership by a margin of more than 2 - 1. In keeping with today's blog theme of leaving the car at home, I thought it fitting to use this picture.
The Scotsman reports that John Major, the "grey man" of British politics has given the new boy his seal of approval. With Gordon Brown likely to be sitting in 10 Downing Street at the time of the next general election, I hope this vote of confidence from John Major doesn't turn into a "kiss of death".
It is interesting to note, however, the disparaging remarks about young David from some of those within the ranks of New Labour and their "mistress" the Liberal Democrats. Is this because the Tories have elected the man that they feared most?
David Cameron was reported in the Guardian as saying
"I tried to start this morning by cycling to work. That was a carbon neutral journey - until the BBC sent a helicopter to follow me!"
Unfortunately for us the picture editor cut away from showing his Jumping Jimmy wellies!
