I was worried to read that, when the Conservative Party published a Top 10 list of why to vote for them last week, the environment didn't even make the list.
David Cameron once urged us to believe that it was his top priority - he even went to the Arctic to be photographed.
The inconsistency suggests he sees them less as policy threats but PR opportunities.
