Waltlington convert

Mr Cameron's support for more flexible licensing hours is perfectly reasonable. It is absurd that Pubs are currently forced to close at 2300. You can support more flexible licensing laws without supporting the Government's mish-mash of reforms, which are clearly unworkable.
It is churlish to attack Mr Cameron on this.
The truth is that after watching last night's Paxman, previous sceptics like me, are now convinced that David Cameron is the man for the job.
Last night, Mr Cameron showed charm, wit and intelligence to face down Mr Paxman. He clearly has the strength to be a good leader.
There is nothing wrong with re-thinking all policies after yet another diastrous election result. (Having said that, I disagree with him on tuition fees, as they clearly are a major discincentive to poorer students).
Contrast Mr Cameron last night to Mr Davis's woeful performance with Mr Paxman last week where he got entangled into argueing whether his tax policy was a pledge or a 'strategy'. Clearly absurd.
Mr Davis's overall performance has disappointed many of us who previously would have been his natural supporters. By contrast Mr Cameron has exceeded expectations.
I now realise that Mr Cameron has star quality and represents the 'zeitgist' for the times we live in.
