#33 Norman Smith on PM

On BBC R4 PM, Norman Smith assistant political editor describing Cameron's opening remarks to the first cabinet meeting following the election, "... the Prime Minister setting out what he hoped will be his core message which, as we heard, is trying to say the the Conservatives are now the party of working people and their mantra is blue collar Conservatism ... all political parties by-and-large say they are  on the side of ordinary people. Mrs Thatcher was the original housewife battling for the ordinary family and Gordon Brown and Tony Blair were invariably talking about hard-working families ... it's what politicians do, they talk about standing up for ordinary people ... it's a bit trite".
