Will the Leveson Report Be David Cameron's Downfall? - The Daily Beast
It's been a long-running nightmare for Prime Minister David Cameron. When the phone-hacking scandal broke in the summer of 2011, Cameron is reported to have told his closest aides, "don't let me launch a public inquiry." But with public outrage mounting at the number of victims and an alleged cover-up, and then the intense combined pressure from his Liberal Democrat partner, Nick Clegg, and the leader of the opposition, Ed Miliband, Cameron was forced to announce a wide-ranging, judge-led examination of the relationship between the press, the public, police, and politicians. Suddenly the ties between Britain's political class and its powerful media moguls came under a searching spotlight.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
