Prime Minister David Cameron Visits The U.S. Read This Week’s Cover Story.
In recasting the party, Cameron makes the most of his own fresh face and the youthfulness of his family—working-mom wife and two children. (His 3-year-old son, Ivan, has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and Cameron has become a champion of disabled children.) Too young to be associated with the failures and controversies of past Tory governments, he speaks the language of renewal. Addressing his party in September—a no-notes, wireless-mike tour de force that seduced wavering Tories and the media—he consciously aped President John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural, urging “young people to see politics not as a waste of time but as a way to change the world.”
