Tory turnarounds: Cameron’s government addicted to flip-flops?
RT’s Sara Firth takes a closer look at why Downing Street changes its collective mind on this or that issue so often.
“Roughly for every 29 days the Coalition has been in power there’s been a change of direction, a U-turn. That compares to 52 [days] under Gordon Brown. Tony Blair was much less likely to change direction, he was modeling himself on Mrs Thatcher and it was 400 days before we got a U-turn out of him,” The Guardian’s Simon Rogers told RT.

natural trait of a coalition government, which is a relatively new
thing in the British politics? Or simply a case of when if you are
in charge you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t? Watch
