CITY VIEWS: HAS DAVID CAMERON BEEN DAMAGED BY THE TORY REBELLION?

TIM KONIG | UBS
“Yes. Any political leader that has that number of his own party rebelling against him opens himself up to reputational damage.”

LEE ADGIE | TD SECURITIES
“Potentially yes. The fact that so many Tory MPs defied him will always have a damaging effect. Over a matter of time it is possible he could bounce back though.”

FRANK HICKS | UK BORDER AGENCY
“In the sense that he has gone against public opinion, yes I do think he is damaged. But I feel that this is a one-off mistake and it is possible for him to recover. It isn’t often that so many of his party disagree with him.”
