Michael Crick does make me laugh sometimes. He has just told Newsnight viewers that in a major concession to the right of the party, and in an attempt to get them on board with the LibDem coalition, David Cameron will offer Cabinet posts to Michael Howard, David Davis and Iain Duncan Smith.
There is a bit of a flaw there, as he already announced Iain Duncan Smith would be playing a leading role in his government at the last conference. Michael Howard was already pencilled in to be Justice Secretary and David Davis, with his stance on civil liberties, would be appealing to the LibDems anyway, especially if he returned to his old job.
From the reports I have heard from the meeting of the Parliamentary Party, there were no siren voices from the right and the whole party gave Cameron their backing.
