In Argo, the Oscar-winning blockbuster, the CIA uses the cover of a fake Hollywood movie to smuggle hostages out of Iran. It could be a metaphor for the Conservative Party. It is as if Mr Cameron has created the publicity stunts and camera crew of modernisation — but in reality has only manufactured a shell, designed to sneak electability past the Tory mullahs.
