The more you ignore me, the closer I get

Cameron declared on Tuesday 'no smugness, no triumphalism, no complacency'... (No smugness? Has anyone spoken to Michael Gove?)

Cameron also let it be known he'd tried to get hold of Barack Obama to tell the presidential candidate what words of wisdom he would be imparting on the situation in Georgia at his monthly press conference. Obama was apparently not available for a chat, which I find hard to believe. Surely he couldn't have had more important things to do than talk to Dave?

US presidential campaigns can't take money from non-US citizens, so david c. had nothing to offer. if he had $100K on the table, Obama may have picked up the phone.

Cameron himself is one of the most smug politicians around. As for Michael Gove, he's off the smugness scale altogether!!

Self-satisfaction and complacency could still prove to be a weakness in Tory attempts to win the next general election, which is still some way off and with many seats that need to be won (plenty of time for all sorts of political developments).
