David Cameron’s response
The judgement on the Environment Agency
Looking at the party splits CON voters are much more likely to blame the Environment Agency than David Cameron. The ones most supportive of the EA are the Lib Dems.
The big worry for both coalition partners is that the quality voters most look for in governments is competancy. Once you’ve lost that then things can get dangerous.
