Still two to come

Last Thursday I had a bet with a friend that before the end of the week at least two out of four words would be used by unoriginal hacks to describe David Cameron’s position, and I won. Yesterday, the Guardian’s Tania Branigan had him as “embattled” and to the New Statesman’s Owen Walker he is “beleaguered”.

Back in November 2005 these two came in handy for Tony Blair as well as the two others I had in mind, and a further couple of useful ones were suggested to me at that time. Commentators on Cameron will no doubt work through all six in the coming weeks.
