Having tried the right and flirted with the left, the Tory leader, David Cameron, has opted for the centre.
It is the second time he has reshuffled his hairdo since he became leader in 2005. He used to part on the right until March last year when he unveiled a new left-parting style. Some speculated about political symbolism, but his spokesman said he had just gone to a different hairdresser. A Tory spokesman said of the latest look: "It was a tribute to Labour – split down the middle." A Tory MP said: "He was late for PMQs and it may be he lost his comb."Reuse content
