You'd better watch out - Cameron's coming to town

Ever in search of the video soundbite and in an attempt to look concerned about 'communities,' David Cameron will be in Birmingham on Monday as part of a programme being made for Panorama.

While the BBC have managed to assemble a collection of suitably diverse people against which to show Dave, they apparently struggled to find a white man or woman between 20 and 50. I'd have applied myself, but they didn't want anyone with strong political views. Nothing that might challenge Little Lord Toryboy seems to be the order of the day.

Only a couple of weeks ago, Dave was busily engaged in diplomacy, threatening the Russians with the most appalling sanctions - being banned from Selfridges, apparently. If only Chamberlain had thought of that when negotiating with Adolf, how different history might have been.

But then he's not known for the depth of his thinking. Challenged this week in advance of the government's rescue package for housing, his only idea was to recycle the abolition of stamp duty.
