Laying down the Law.

David Laws today put the lefties in the Lib Dems firmly back in their box as he gave full backing to David Cameron and the coalition.

Laws states that after being on the "edge of a cliff" during the summer recess neither Cameron or Clegg "likes what he see's" before the Minister for Schools and the Cabinet Office goes on to say that "the public is hardly crying out for Ed Miliband."

Laws also praises Michael Gove for bringing rigour back into schools and George Osborne for delivering necessary cuts.

In probably his best article since returning to government the Yeovil MP also says that the coalition should not be afraid to admit that producing economic growth is proving harder and that Labour is only up in the polls because Labour is down.

All good stuff but not the type to gain new friends in his own party.
