First it was banks, then countries and now it seems it shoots down the wrong end of the telescope and it is individual Ministers.
It is becoming quite obvious that Chris Huhne is, in some odd way to big to fail.
While Liam Fox is David Cameron's business, it has become utterly clear that the Prime Minister has absolutely no authority over the activities of the Lib/Dem cabinet Ministers.
And it is equally obvious that Nick Clegg is scared of Chris Huhne. And because of that internal Lib Dem fear the Prime Minister is saddled with a senior Minister who is obviously totally unsuited to the job that he holds. he is a Minister of the Crown, and he behaves like the Student Union cadre he once was.
But Cameron is impotent.
