If you’re missing your fix of political docu-drama that’s been absent since those dramas with Micheal Sheen as Blair/the BBC Thatcher season/ Party Animals’ main mover became Dr Who, Channel 4 is set to screen a dramatisation of Cameron’s Bullingdon Club days according to the Mirror.

The paper also reports that, dsepite the hug a hoodie/ new man-buggy pushing image of their leader, the new intake of Tory MPs after the next election is likely to signal a sharp right turn in the parliamentary party.
