This is an important article from the Telegraph’s  chief political commentator, Peter Oborne. It’s a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READ, in my view. Check it out!


At last, our political leaders have shown what they really believe – Telegraph.


Personally, I struggle with the record of achievements of David Cameron’s Government. I genuinely believe that reform has not been properly risk assessed nor effectively costed, based upon alternative strategies. The Government has relied upon a small team of cronies for expert advice. Delivery of reform has been seriously problematic, with major cost overruns. However, it’s not just about broken reform; there has been a collapse in the quality of public services from both central and local government. Most critically, there has been excessive austerity which has caused unnecessarily economic pain for the middle and lower classes. Little has been done to genuinely strengthen the UK’s economic base, in terms of investment and improving the skills of the nation. Meanwhile, in terms of foreign policy, the UK seems to be now fighting below weight because of fiascoes.


Let me turn this to an open question:


Do you agree with Peter Oborne’s assessment of David Cameron‘s achievements or are my own observations closer to the mark?


Any thoughts?
