More from the foothills

 The Chris Mullin of 1999 to 2002 was prescient about policies (he early caught wind of Tony Blair's eagerness to fall in behind GW Bush in the plan to invade Iraq and condemned it, and also predicted a disastrous outcome for New Labour's embracing of PFI) but not so good at assessing people. Here he is about someone he saw as a fresh young libertarian:

More than once, when we reached an impasse [on a select committee on drugs], David Cameron came to the rescue. The more I see of him, the more I like. He's bright, personable and refreshingly open-minded.

In the light of Greensill, what does Mullin think of him now?
