Model Behaviour

Two British public figures have been in trouble for their alleged cocaine use recently:

A. Fashion model Kate Moss, pictured using a mirror for something other than checking her immaculate outfits.
B. Tory leader candidate David Cameron, who has refused to either confirm or deny rumours that he has tried cocaine in the past.

The consequences have been a bit different for Kate and Cameron, however.

Cocaine is generally agreed to render Miss Moss unfit for her job as a model (consisting mostly of keeping a slim figure), and she has lost several contracts and been sent to rehab.

Tory MPs seem less concerned about drugs impeding their man from doing a good job in No 10 (consisting, hopefully, of keeping a clear head and staying away from dangerous hubris), and David Cameron has emerged as a front runner in the campaign.

Well, there you go. Who got it right? Were people to strict on Moss, or to lenient towards Cameron?

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

In response to your comment re: do I think Cameron will be too young to be PM?

Keeping in mind Cameron will be in his mid-40s when the next general election rolls around, I'd have to say no. It must be noted, however, that age really has little to do with my desire to see Cameron take over the tory party. David Cameron is a great communicator, and in the age of 24 hour news networks and the internet, the ability to effectively communicate one's message is almost as important as the message itself. David Cameron's position that the tory party has to become more in tune with 21st century life is a valid point, but more vital to the tory's potential success than how far to the centre they move, is the ability of the party's leader, whomever it is, to communicate with the British people. I believe David Cameron is in the best position to do just that...regardless of whether he is 39, 44 or 65 years of age.

Regarding this cocaine scandal...I dont' think too many tories should worry about it. I can think of one politican who has proved to be rather successful despite similiar rumours. In fact, the last time I checked he was still the most powerful man in the world.
