MPs had a meeting with David Cameron yesterday afternoon – he said he didn’t want to see the meeting reported on ConservativeHome.
He made no mention of Cornerstone however, so here goes.
David looked great; fit, trim and full of energy; he looked very confident, as did George (Osborne) he was positively bouncing, but then George always is.
David was in control and shot down every recycled announcement Gordon Brown had made in his speech – not a difficult thing to do I hear you say, however, he did it with AK47 accuracy and no notes – just raw anger, which was impressive.
You could tell he was getting impatient, almost willing Gordon Brown to call the election, he wants to take him on now. He is ready and totally up for it.
Next week will give David his platform, and if he performs half as well as he did in the meeting yesterday, then Gordon Brown will be a very worried man.
As the saying goes, a week is a long time in politics, next week will be the longest in David’s life, and I predict, probably one of the best.
