David Cameron was frustrated yesterday to find his party is trailing in fourth place in Scotland. "Of course it is always frustrating when you are not always getting through," he said on only his second visit to Scotland during the campaign. Irritating Scots, refusing to listen to the next Prime Minister.
He won't be losing any sleep over us though because Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party MPs have indicated they will formally back hum if he protects the region from this year's public spending cuts. The move would cost up to £200 million.
The deal would give his party another 9 or 10 seats and according to current opinion polls, this would be enough for him to form a majority government.
During a visit to Northern Ireland yesterday David Cameron indicated he wished to give Northern Ireland politicians ministerial positions - and see the province play a key role in the 'mainstream politics' of the entire UK.
Ken Clarke opined: "In the end you can always do a deal with an Ulsterman, but it's not the way to run a modern, sophisticated society." Oh so true Mr Clarke.
So there we have it, it's all stitched up. I predict the Tories will get their majority, although it will be a very slim one.
