The most illuminating issue to have emerged from the recent News International scandal is just how do we trust and put our faith in Mr Cameron again?
It is 1994. In Rwanda's Gisimba Orphange, 400 people huddle in silence. Terrified children hide in roof spaces and crawl under bunk beds to escape the regular onslaught of attackers. The people are a bribe, desperate plea or second glance away from slaughter.

The author of Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne, once said that 'organising is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up'. This coalition government has demonstrated a boldly pragmatic and non-ideological mindset since taking office.
