BBC NEWS | UK | UK Politics | The David Cameron story

Cameron has hit the top spot.

My own feeling is that there are at least two Camerons, the solid guy who has been a good MP, and the Blairyenglander who knows just how to twist and turn his way to the top.

Whatever else I might say of him he is not as slimy as his predecessor in the constituency, Shaun Woodward, who ended up joining Labour.

Cameron is undoubtedly talented and hard working. At the moment I see him as a new front man for torysim rather than a great new tory party leader, with a new direction for his party.

His stance on the Iraq war is completely reactionary.

BBC NEWS | UK | UK Politics | The David Cameron story: "Jeff Randall, writing in The Daily Telegraph where he is a senior executive, said he would not trust Mr Cameron 'with my daughter's pocket money'.

'To describe Cameron's approach to corporate PR as unhelpful and evasive overstates by a widish margin the clarity and plain-speaking that he brought to the job of being Michael Green's mouthpiece,' wrote the ex-BBC business editor.

'In my experience, Cameron never gave a straight answer when dissemblance was a plausible alternative, which probably makes him perfectly suited for the role he now seeks: the next Tony Blair,' Mr Randall wrote.

Sun business editor Ian King, recalling the same era, described Mr Cameron as a 'poisonous, slippery individual'."
