Cameron’s PM Direct success

I’m sure you’ll have seen on TV news David Cameron at one of his PM Direct events around the country. I don’t think this has had the praise that it deserves. It’s surely a positive and welcome improvement in access to the Prime Minister that the public can ask the Prime Minister tough questions, face to face.

The pundocracy, and naturally opposition politicians, are quick to point out any mis-speakings by Cameron. It would be interesting to hear what the general public thinks. I imagine that they’ll generally be forgiving for small mistakes, in exchange for the openness  of the Prime Minister to challenge by ordinary members of the public.

Since becoming Prime Minister, Cameron has held five of these PM Direct town hall-style meetings that I’ve counted, Brighton & Hove, Luton, Birmingham, Manchester, and Newquay. I think that’s pretty good going.
