The PR-PM, David Cameron’s decisions, like Blair’s before him, are driven significantly by the need to survive politically: hence the thought-light shabbiness of his image-motivated reshuffle.

Accordingly, if he does survive, it will only be narrowly: big wins demand a landslide popularity surge — reserved either for the best, most zeitgeist-tuned actors, or for those with real, palpable conviction.

David Cameron, and his calculated but soggy metro-centrism, fall into neither category: an insult both to the sacked Michael Gove’s pioneering and Herculean education reform, and to previous, principled leaders’ Tory stewardship, they may yet see the Conservatives fall short of a 2015 working majority.

For ill-conceived cynicism, they rather deserve to.
