Tory MP: Now it's okay for us to say to Cameron: "What the hell are you talking about?"

Thanks to Mark Pack on LibDem Voice for pointing out this absolute beaut of an article from the Telegraph.

Essentially, David Cameron is facing the prospect of a very rough ride when he faces his MPs on Wednesday. They now know that the Emperor has no clothes so they have a much freer rein to question and criticise him:

However Mr Cameron decides to proceed, he must first placate his MPs. As one of them said: "Suddenly it's okay for us to say to him, 'What the hell are you talking about?'" The Tory leader needs to provide a convincing answer.

Veteran Conservatives, however, say the real question is why Mr Cameron put the inexperienced Mr Shapps in charge of the battle in the first place.

It was a decision that delighted Labour. Watching television coverage of the by-election on Friday morning at No 10, Gordon Brown saw the youthful Mr Shapps, an MP of only three years, talking about the defeat, and said: "If I'd known he was running it, I wouldn't have worried.
