Cameron “finds out policies from newspapers” claims former advisor

13 January: The Telegraph reports that Steve Hilton, once a key adviser to David Cameron, has revealed his frustrations over working at Number 10, claiming that the Prime Minister often only found out about coalition policies from reading the newspapers.

Hilton, who quit in May 2012, said it was “horrific” that the coalition spent so much of its time on areas not in their manifestos, such as reforming the EU.

The policy guru, famous for striding around No10 in his stockinged feet, said: “Very often you’ll wake up in the morning and hear on the radio or in the news or see something in the newspapers about something the government is doing.

“And you think, well, just hang on a second – it’s not just that we didn’t know it was happening, but we don’t even agree with it.”
