Make your mind up
After an ill-judged lurch to the left, where the Prime Minister considered it appropriate to criticise Oxford University for the inadequate racial make-up of its student intake, Mr Cameron will today lurch back to the right by making a speech about immigration, implying that there has been too much of it. As far as I can see, in neither case are Mr Cameron's remarks a prelude for action. He seems to be just letting off steam, seeking no doubt to create an impression of being all things to all men. A more settled policy direction would be welcome. But don't count on it.
