A fully updated edition of the first major biography of David Cameron, now covering his first year as Prime Minister and leader of the coalition government
David Cameron emerged as the first Tory leader in years to come across as a man of the people, an ordinary man in a traditionally reviled political position. This biography reveals more about the man behind the spin. It explores the future direction of the Conservatives and looks at several important questions: Is the current honeymoon evidence of a new Tory Party, or simply recognition that the appearance of newness is needed? Will he really be prepared to jeopardize the support of the traditional grass roots? How deep are his environmental credentials? How will he react when the press turns nasty? Does his success mark a return of the old class deference? Or is it the opposite, a sign that background, for better or worse, is now unimportant?
