As David Cameron bounded off the “Question Time” stage, Jim Messina, the former Obama staffer now advising the U.K. prime minister, gave his verdict.
“Strong commanding performance from Cameron,” he tweeted. “He was outstanding.”
At almost the same time, Culture Minister Ed Vaizey weighed in. “Strong and commanding performance,” he tweeted.
For a moment, it looked like Business Minister Matt Hancock had veered off-message. “Wow,” he began, in a daring ad-lib. “What a strong, commanding performance from David Cameron.” It was hard to escape the conclusion that some strong commanding had been going on somewhere.
One of the reasons I would LUV for Cameron to go down is that he is being advised by Messina.
