Cameron romps home.


As expected then, David Cameron won the leadership of the Conservative Party today by a margin of some 70,000 votes. His majority alone was more than David Davis' total polling. This gives Cameron the mandate he so needs in order to bring unity to the notoriously divided party. The leadership campaign at large has been a success for the Tories and has brought Conservative policy (or at least, ideals in Mr Cameron's case) to the public at large. Cameron's modernising credentials remain intact and as such his election to leader has demonstrated that at last, the Tories have recognised their inability to move forward and can begin to really push for change - starting with their own party. Which brings us neatly to the issue of the new shadow cabinet. More on that later...
