Hug a Hutu
July 25th 2007
Pity Calamity Cameron.
The Tory Leader is back in this country from his entirely admirable attempt to draw attention to world hunger. He will get no credit or thanks. His party is furious because he deserted his constituency and country at a time of flood peril. What is worse to them he moved away out of the focus of media attention.
His foreign cavorting could not grab publicity away from the dramatic images of the floods. The trip is mocked as his ‘Hug a Hutu’ moment. It’s not his fault. But it’s atrociously bad luck that the two events coincided.
Being out of luck is a fatal flaw for party leaders
