David Cameron has announced that he is on the verge of making a tough decision. “The central role of government is to make the tough decisions. Then, when you get a lot of people angry and upset change your mind and pass the blame on to a junior minister.”
Making the announcement outside Downing Street, he said. “After coming to power I have been waiting for just the right moment to make one of those really tough decisions. Everybody else has had a go and told me how much fun they are to make. I think the time is now right for me to have a go and over the next few days you can expect a real humdinger of a tough decision from me.
