Nicholas Leonard: Cameron's swearing is a classic symptom of exhaustion and he's plenty to be stressed about

If you want to see how the stress of being prime minister is affecting David Cameron, you only have to listen to his language. Many of his traditional supporters have been shocked by the way he uses four-letter expletives as casually as a teenager in a school playground.
