SET THE TIVO FOR C-SPAN:

The great gamble (Philip Webster and Rosemary Bennett, 12/07/05, Times of London)

THE Conservatives yesterday staked their future on David Cameron, the most inexperienced person to become leader of a British political party since William Pitt the Younger.

Mr Cameron, at 39, faces Tony Blair across the dispatch box at Question Time today after becoming the 26th leader of the Conservative Party.


It'll be the first time Tony Blair's ever seemed an elder statesman.

I caught a bit of it on NPR this morning; Cameron was beating on the line that with Conservative support, Blair need have no fear of acting boldly on school reform.

Question Time is the one device from a Parlimentary system I really rather like.
