It has been announced that the Prime Minister has decided against employing a photographer and film maker at the tax-payers' expense.
David Cameron has recently come under a barrage of criticism for previously deciding on this move, largely seen as an unnecessary expense at a time when the Coalition are engaging in a program of huge cuts in public spending and have endlessly lectured the British people on the need to tighten their belts.
Common sense has eventually and quite rightly, prevailed.
But it reflects very badly on Mr Cameron and the Coalition to have even thought that such appointments were acceptable in the first place.
It shows how out of touch the Prime Minister and his Cabinet of millionaires are with the needs of ordinary people who struggle every day to make ends meet.
