From that answer we can see that the Prime Minister will not even address the fact that he is losing the support of his party. He lives in a world best summed up by the analysis given to him about his local election results by the No. 10 planning committee. The leaked report said that

"people were angry with Tony because they love him so much, and they are angry because they think he might go".

I think that that is what they call the view from the bunker.

Until a week ago, the Prime Minister was telling us that he would serve a full third term. Why did he change his mind?
