Seeing David Cameron on the televised debates, and reading his manifesto, it is clear why he felt at home among the infamously elitist Bullingdon Club while at Oxford University.

There is plenty in his words and actions to terrify caring, compassionate people who seek to make our world better for all.

To take the UK forward we need a Prime Minister in whom all the usual strengths are tempered by humanity and with the insight to be inclusive rather than exclusive.

Mr Cameron is flawed in all these areas and with his enthusiasm for bloodsports is clearly far better suited to being a Master of Hounds.
