KNOW who David Cameron reminds me of? Bertie Ahern, that's who. It may seem an odd pairing, the Eton-educated toff and the lad from Drumcondra, but both are prone to the Scarlett O'Hara syndrome.
The flawed heroine of 'Gone with the Wind' would defer problems by saying she would think about them tomorrow - "tomorrow is another day".
The tendency served Mr Ahern well in the frustrating Northern Ireland negotiations when tomorrow often had to be another day. It served him - and the rest of us - ill when it came to the economy, where planning for tomorrow is the whole point of policy.
