We are told that the Coalition is so virtuous, so essential that it can do no wrong. Our constitutional arrangements are to be changed to suit it and when those it favours do wrong are they are motivated by the finest of motives and should be quickly forgiven. Our Dave – perish the thought – has a shared characterstic with the young Stalin. He is quick to detect his enemies and acts ruthlessly to destroy them: Ed Balls, his Oxford contemporary, is subject to a concentrated election campaign to unseat him; in his first post-election television interview , Dave attacks David Milliband for weaknesses at the Foreign Office; and the BBC is targetted for including Alistair Campbell on Question Time. Who or what is next?
