Voters don’t buy Cameron’s rhetoric

I’ve written before that I’m extremely sceptical of the reform package offered by David Cameron. Well guess what? The voters don’t buy it either:

David Cameron yesterday called for a ‘massive, sweeping, radical redistribution of power’ in the country, arguing that it was time for citizens and parliament to claw back some control from the state.

Under a quarter (twenty three per cent) reckoned that he would carry through with such a radical redistribution of power.

The only group who felt that Cameron would live up to his words on gaining power were Conservative supporters, and even these only by the slender margin of fifty four to forty four.
