As the dust settles from the grammar confrontation

Assuming the Telegraph has managed to fight of the DoS attack being carried out on it, then there should be a interesting article by Tim Montgomerie in the comment section here.

Tempers have perhaps cooled a bit. Tim believes that some of project Cameron may see the last week as something of a success (though not Tim himself). Guido has a similar view expressed in his own style. They appear to me to move in the same circles - so perhaps there is something in that analysis. If true its somewhat worrying.

Tim tries to warn against this sort of exercise being repeated, but I wonder if it won't be. I hope not, and that someone in David Cameron's inner circle sees sense.

We will find out soon enough.

From my point of view I wish David Cameron would understand what Tony Blair expressed when he gave his Mondeo Man speech ( to a Labour party conference ), that you don't win elections by going against people's aspirations.

Lets hope it can be left at that.
