Aside from some rather forthright criticism of David Cameron by Boris Johnston today, Tories seem to be of the opinion that David Cameron has done nothing wrong and that what he did was almost amusing. for perhaps the first time in my life I find myself in agreement with Boris rather than the bulk of Tory bloggers who have either ignored Dave's transgressions or seen to make light of it.
I wondered what a couple of Tory bloggers thought when Charles Kennedy was caught out having a crafty cigarette a few months ago to see if they were so forgiving. Iain Dale thought Kennedy was a hypocrite, whilst others seemed to think the Kennedy story was worth reporting whilst staying oddly silent about "call me Dave" and his cycling offences.
So it seems the Tories are far more willing to forgive someone who is a danger to other cyclists, pedestrians and cars than you might normally imagine.
Is this a sign of the Tories much more forgiving attitude under David Cameron or a sign of massive hypocrisy ? Well we'll find out the next time someone in another political party commits a misdemeanour.
For me the oddest thing about the whole affair was David Cameron's quote "I know it is important to obey traffic laws - but I have obviously made mistakes on this occasion and I am sorry,"
The key words are "mistakes on this occasion". No Dave, you were filmed on three separate occasions over three weeks. Everyone is entitles to a one off mistake, but three mistakes over three weeks surely makes you a serial offender.
