Cameron in Kuwait

James Forsyth at The Spectator has picked up really well on David Cameron's speech in Kuwait today. It's a compact piece, but tells a strong story.

Forsyth is generally very good at this sort of thing, understanding not merely the words or the basic principles and intentions behind them, but the significance as well.

He has done so again today, in sussing out the truly liberal (in the literal sense) nature of Cameron's speech, and in particular in the PM's "hit[ting] all the right notes". His suggestions in his final paragraph are provocative but serious and important. Our leaders should at least be looking at them, and indeed they probably are.
