So David Cameron is the new Tory leader. His performance in Prime Minister's Question Time today was interesting. He asked three questions in a row, all on education (wasn't it Blair who was all about "Education, education and education"?), and started off his career as opposition leader by stating how much he and Labour agree on education, and making promises to Tony that he would vote for his policies.
He was definitely trying to flag up his commitment to "consensus politics", a nice idea in theory. Still, I can't help wondering if this newfound enthusiasm for working together where there's agreement is really a reflection of the sad fact that there is increasingly little difference between New Labour and old Conservatism.
