Cockerell on Cameron - the truth

Iain Dale has commented on Cockerell on Cameron tonight. I also watched it. Whilst I agree with Iain that it did come across very well from a Conservative perspective and that the anti-brigade (Heffer and McKenzie) were against Cameron simply out of pure parochialism, as a result their arguments didn't stack up. Overall however I couldn't help being a bit disappointed by the impression it gave that politics as a whole is not about conviction or honesty or about standing up for what you believe in, but rather simply saying what needs to be said.

I actually think David Cameron is far more of a conviction politician than that programme brought out, there are issues about which he does care deeply and that stress was sadly lacking.
