"Decontamination" is a word I’m suddenly hearing/ reading a lot in connection with what David Cameron has achieved for his first year as leader.  I did a pre-record for Radio 4 yesterday and was asked about the decontamination of the Conservative Party and Irwin Stelzer has used the term in an article he has written for this week’s Spectator.  Someone must be briefing it.

This comes from within a Wikipedia definition of decontamination:

"Persons suspected of being contaminated are usually separated by sex."

That must be the A-list phase!
