Clarke savages his Leader

I don't know whether he will get the full Newsnight, 10.0 clock News and Radio 4 treatment, but another big beast in the jungle named Clarke has turned on his party leader. Describing Cameron's proposals for a Bill of Rights as "xenophobic and legal nonsense" Kenneth Clarke, who is supposed to be heading up the Tory Task Force on Constitutional issues, but wasn't even told about the proposals, proved what many of us thought all along, Cameron makes these things up as he goes along. They are pieces of ill-considered, misconceived 'back-of-a-fag-packet' policies designed Blair-like to appeal to the nastiest tabloid headline writers.
