    'The Prime Minister has started to turn into a president, in what he does and how he acts. Although not seen as much in Cameron's reign, it was evident in Blair's.'

    Michael Foley describes the transition towards a presidential style, and says comparisons shouldn't be drawn with the American President, but the creation of a distinctively British President.


    Well, he probably wants to go on to be an EU commissioner and president of the commission in 5 years time

    true - because of the nature of our constitution the PM can effectively do whatever he wants within his cabinet/party up to a point

    Remember Tony Blair

    Has he? In what way? What's he doing that's massively different to any other PM?

    What is there to discuss when you've given us no reasoning?
