This post over at Three Line Whip makes a good point. That fun Mirror story about Cameron “flouting the laws” as he cycled to Parliament doesn't seem to have done the Tory leader any harm. As far as I can tell, there's been no widespread anger. No anti-“toff” sentiment. Nothing. Brownites must be terribly disappointed.

The Mirror has – I'm sure unwittingly – played a part in the response. They've followed their scoop with stories which play-up the comic aspects of it all. But it's no less encouraging for Team Cameron that the “he's too posh for the rest of us” charge is failing to stick.

P.S. If you're stuck for anything to do this weekend, there's always Dangerous Dave's Run the Red Light Cycling Game.
