Cameron’s Brazilian moment
This description of the arrogant style of Cameron and Osborne, by someone who has either seen it himself or had it recounted to him by Tory insiders, is interesting:
When David Cameron and George Osborne move between their suite of offices at the eastern end of the parliamentary estate and the Commons chamber they do so with a pomp that would not embarrass a medieval monarch. A crowd of attendants accompanies them, constantly changing positions but never disrupting the order: staffer, Cameron, staffer, Osborne, staffer. The party moves through the corridors at breakneck speed, heads thrown back, staring into the middle distance rather than looking around at their colleagues.
If that’s what Tory insiders get, then the rest of us need to be pretty worried.
It puts me in mind of this short scene (about 5mins 20 secs in) from Terry Gilliam’s Brazil. Tory dystopia, indeed.
