Putting the words Auschwitz and gimmick together is ill-advised and for a politician to do this is particularly foolish. Whatever the substance of David Cameron’s criticisms he has opened himself up to some awful headlines.

The Tories would be wise to back down gracefully and quickly. If they don’t, they will open themselves up to the charge that they genuinely think that trips to Auschwitz are a gimmick—which they do not.
