DAVID Cameron launched his campaign to rebuild trust in politics’ when he visited the University of East London’s Docklands campus, on the day three MPs at Westminster lost their party whip.
The Conservative Party leader spoke to university staff, students and media yesterday on his vision for the future.
He touched on the thorny subject of MPs’ expenses and the withdrawal of the Labour whip from three MPs by Gordon Brown when he met the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Patrick McGhee.
But his main theme was his “new form or politics” taking the power to the people.
Mr Cameron, speaking to an audience of students, staff and guests, spoke of his preference for a “quiet effectiveness in the style of government” that he wanted and the plans to take power “from the elite to give to the man on the street.”
He added: “One of the great things about this job is that you get to meet the people who lead our institutions, people like the Vice-Chancellor who have a great passion for what they do.”
