A Charmed Life: David Cameron, the fast-tracked Teflon Tory (Parts One and Two)



My two-parter on David Cameron, the fast-tracked Teflon Tory, for RT.com

The #PanamaPapers leaks have exposed David Cameron as a hypocrite and consequently done great harm to his reputation.
If the political fall-out from the leaks does eventually bring the British Prime Minister down then he can't really complain as he's had a dream ride up to now.
He didn’t deserve to become Conservative Party leader in 2005 as his main rivals for the job were better qualified and more experienced and he most certainly, given his track record in office, didn't deserve to get another term as Prime Minister in 2015.

You can read the rest of Part One here.  Part Two can be read here.
