Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So let's upgrade the claim to 'Nobody with any observable influence on policy.'

I wasn't making a comment on the general issue; I was commenting on the over-generalisation in the diary and demonstrated that - if one looked at some available evidence - the issue was more complex than claimed in the diary. Obviously I was not arguing that change of policy is being advocated as much as I and others here would like.

I also pointed out the couple of examples I cited were just some of the first from the results of a quick google search.

As I also pointed out in my previous comment, there is a growing number of people of the kind who could well have an observable influence on policy - but those with some chance of doing so are not of course the more radical types. Then again it would be very difficult for Cameron to in effect admit that he and his team had been making a big mistake for three years.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
